1968 Mixed Up Files Newbery Acceptance Speech online?

I have to write a brief paper on how From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler fits the description of a Newbery, and I also have to mention some bits about Konigsberg acceptance speech.

My problem: I know it's in Horn Book but I don't have the ability to get a physical copy in time

Is this particular Newbery Acceptance Speech buried somewhere in the internet for public reading?

(I have already checked ALA's website on the Newbery Award--no luck there)

I'm almost positive this is included in the e-book version, which if you buy from Amazon, you should be able to view in your browser.

Elaine Konigsburg (spelled with a 'u,' not an 'e') is my aunt-in-law. I know the full text of the speech you're referring to is also in her book, Talk Talk.

Part of the speech.

Thank you!
I know it's a 'u' but repeatedly searching for that combined with Newbery seems to have scrambled my typing for this question. Same sound w/ a different vowel.
Thanks again! And let your aunt-in-law know I loved the book!
