Chandos And you an academic and educated and all of this! Of course, this should have been "?tate 17". Daniel Ridings will undoubtedly correct me, but I believe that this is an ablative of reference (aka, ablative of respect), that that final "e" is vital to make the point: "at the age of 17". What you wrote is gibberish in both English and Latin. Pray, do not continually let the side down, brother: ask for advice, and it will be freely forthcoming, before you make a howler such as the one you just made.
