4913 Mr Corles was in command of machine guns
4914 but when the time came to fire
4915 he merely lit a cigarette and walked away from his
4916 battery and seated himself in a field,
4917 So some subaltern gave the order to fire
4918 and Mr Corles did not suffer the extreme penalty
4919 because his family
4920 was a very good bourgeois family in Vienna
4921 and he was therefor sent to a mind sanatorium.
4922 Mr Fidascz

4925 or some other better known -ovitch
4926 whose name we must respect because of the
4927 law of libel,
4928 was conducting
4929 in particular the Mattias Passion, after requesting that
4930 the audience come in black clothes;
4931 And the Fraulein Doktor nearly wept over the Tyrol,
4932 being incapable of seeing that the century-old joke on Italia
4933 was now on somebody else
4934 though if they cd. sentimentalize over that lousy old
4935 bewhiskered sonvabitch François Giuseppe of whom nothing
4936 good is recorded---in fact with the most patient research---
4937 nothing good is recorded...... and so forth....
4938 this is Mitteleuropa

4940 has explained to me the warmth of affections,
4941 the intramural, the almost intravaginal warmth of
4943 pointing out that Mr Lewinesholme has suffered by deprivation
4944 of same and exposure to American snobbery ..." I am a product,"
4945 said the young lady, "of Mitteleuropa,"
4946 but she seemed to have been able to mobilize
4947 and the fine thing was that the family did not
4948 wire about papa's death for fear of disturbing the concert
4949 which might seem to contradict the general indefinite wobble.
4950 It must be rather like some internal organ,
4951 some communal life of the pancreas.... sensitivity

5006 That there be made a fontego (a chamber)
5007 to lend money on cloth so that they cease not to

5021 can't sell here ... Item: a dye works ... that they can dye

5062 I speak in season
5063 She seeks reason for an affect, wild often
5064 That is so proud he hath Love for a name
5065 Who denys it can hear the truth now
5066 Wherefore I speak to the present knowers
5067 Having no hope that low-hearted
5068 Can bring sight to such reason
5069 Be there not natural demonstration
5070 I have no will to try proof-bringing
5071 Or say where it hath birth
5072 What is its virtu and power
5073 Its being and every moving
5074 Or delight whereby 'tis called "to love"
5075 Or if man can show it to sight.
5076 Where memory liveth,
5077 it takes its state
5078 Formed like a diafan from light on shade
5079 Which shadow cometh of Mars and remaineth
5080 Created, having a name sensate,
5081 Custom of the soul,
5082 will from the heart;
5083 Cometh from a seen form which being understood
5084 Taketh locus and remaining in the intellect possible
5085 Wherein hath he neither weight nor still-standing,
5086 Descendeth not by quality but shineth out
5087 Himself his own effect unendingly
5088 Not in delight but in the being aware
5089 Nor can he leave his true likeness otherwhere.
5090 He is not vertu but cometh of that perfection
5091 Which is so postulate not by the reason
5092 But 'tis felt, I say.
5093 Beyond salvation, holdeth his judging force
5094 Deeming intention to be reason's peer and mate,
5095 Poor in discernment, being thus weakness' friend
5096 Often his power cometh on death in the end,
5097 Be it withstayed
5098 and so swinging counterweight.
5099 Not that it were natural opposite, but only
5100 Wry'd a bit from the perfect,
5101 Let no man say love cometh from chance
5102 Or hath not established lordship
5103 Holding his power even though
5104 Memory hath him no more.
5105 Cometh he to be
5106 when the will
5107 From overplus
5108 Twisteth out of natural measure,
5109 Never adorned with rest Moveth he changing colour
5110 Either to laugh or weep
5111 Contorting the face with fear
5112 resteth but a little
5113 Yet shall ye see of him That he is most often
5114 With folk who deserve him
5115 And his strange quality sets sighs to move
5116 Willing man look into that forméd trace in his mind
5117 And with such uneasiness as rouseth the flame.
5118 Unskilled can not form his image,
5119 He himself moveth not, drawing all to his stillness,
5120 Neither turneth about to seek his delight
5121 Nor yet to seek out proving
5122 Be it so great or so small.
5123 He draweth likeness and hue from like nature
5124 So making pleasure more certain in seeming
5125 Nor can stand hid in such nearness,
5126 Beautys be darts tho' not savage
5127 Skilled from such fear a man follows
5128 Deserving spirit, that pierceth.
5129 Nor is he known from his face
5130 But taken in the white light that is allness
5131 Toucheth his aim
5132 Who heareth, seeth not form
5133 But is led by its emanation.
5134 Being divided, set out from colour,
5135 Disjunct in mid darkness
5136 Grazeth the light, one moving by other,
5137 Being divided, divided from all falsity
5138 Worthy of trust
5139 From him alone mercy proceedeth.
5140 Go, song, surely thou mayest
5141 Whither it please thee
5142 For so art thou ornate that thy reasons
5143 Shall be praised from thy understanders,
5144 With others hast thou no will to make company.

5147 "which explains, perhaps, the delay in condemning him"
