The letter customization chapter appears in both the third and fourth 
editions.  The "house letter style" example is quite comprehensive and 
includes repositioning the date (though this is given short shrift in 
the description).  The code that inserts the date is on page 357 (the 
first line) in my copy of K&D 4th ed.
