Good afternoon folks:

I ran into a thorny issue this morning.  I have a literary author, Ricardo B. Rodriguez, whom I'd like to propose a literary number for, but alas, per the CIP data, the "B." is actually the initial of his first last name (he's Argentine).  It's been known to happen., 

I have no idea how to cutter a situation like this.  I'm able to get PQ7798.412. .... but then it starts to break down.

The LC Shelflisting manual wasn't much help either.

Thanks in advance

We're happy as fish,
as gorgeous as geese,
and wonderfully clean in the morning.
