Thanks for responding Isaac.  Does using a first draft to establish a conception date preclude later establishing an earlier conception date?  It would be easier to establish diligence from the first draft date than the earliest conception date or invention disclosure.

Establishing an easy conception date it does not preclude later making a more difficult effort to establish an earlier conception date.

so now i need to investigate whether there is reasonable diligence from that point to filing of the application.
 
The MPEP (2138.06) states that 6 days from execution of formal documents to filing is reasonable.  If I have more than a month or two, that puts me in a gray or dark gray area.

So does Frank10 need to submit evidence of diligence OR can he just aver due diligence prior to the reference date to the filing date of the application (constructive reduction to practice)?  THanks.
