Note (in Faulkner's hand, p. 16): "True, true, true, to have said: One must understand a thing to love it--how/cold, cold. But to love and forgive--well, at sight, is better/than comprehension. A day thing at best."
Note (in Faulkner's hand, p. 74): "I'll be goddamned if I ever read such a bulging/mess of sweetness and light in my life. Imagine/a fattish man with a blond well-nourished moustache/carrying a flash light, and you've got the picture./What is the matter with these Huns? They composed/music nice, nice some of their painted pictures;/but now they cant [sic] even seem to win bicycle/races with dignity. But I retract: Mr Ludwig/Lewisohn must have translated this stuff."
Note (in Faulkner's hand, p. 79): "As the young fish, staring up through the ice at/the lady skaters, said: 'For Christ's sake.'"
Note (in Faulkner's hand, p. 84): "You damn right. It takes a good short-stop to/report a baseball game./Mencken on a hobby-horse; Billy Sunday having/a nightmare in the Browning society./His idea seems to be to take the toy train someone/else has made, and make a toy aeroplane of it./When a man lets the sheer physical pleasure of a galloping/pen get him he should by all means confine himself to/vagueness, else some/dull soul may prove facts on him afterward."
Note (in Faulkner's hand, after advertisements at end): "Bunk. It takes a German to accept an arbitrary and usually/false premise and arrive with unimpeachable logic at a con-/clusion not only unsound but usually impracticable. Goethe,/ for instance. Quite correct here, for Goethe deliberately/made himself a poet, and so is unique in all history./Shakespeare: after money and position, at least trying to/write plays/--taking the first thing that came to hand, which was the/stage/--becomes a poet by accident; Shelly [sic] trying/to fancy himself an atheist and a democrat, Keats trying/to seduce Fannye Brawne with words, Verlaine washing/his emotional dirty linen, Swinburne like a bird in the/top of a tree--all became poets by accident. What/did they care about establishing any correlation between/the important facts of hunger and sex and death/and any sort of spiritual world? Bunk. A real poet/hasn't got time to do that. Particularly as the German/critics are sure to do it for him, overreading him/with the bland courtesy of undertaking that appears before the/enjoie[?] is even dead. Stick to your music, ye logical/dull men. Let the French who are aware of the/utter unimportance of ideas, make criticism./Vide Wm. Pottlesy 2? September 1925/Normandy."
