FDV: "The proteiform graph itself is a polyexigetical piece of scripture. There was a time when alphabetters would have written it down the tracing of a pure deliquescent recidivist, snubnosed, probably, and having a profound rainbowl in his (or her) occiput. Closer inspection of the bordereau would however reveal a multiplicity of personalities inflicted on the provoking document and a prevision of crime or crimes might unwarily be made before any suitable occasion for it or them had presented. But under the very eyes of inspection the traits which feature the sympathetic page coalesce, their contrarieties eliminated in a stable somebody, as by the warring of housebreaker on heartbreaker, of dram drinker with freethinker society bowls along bumpily through generations, more generations & still more generations. Who in hell wrote the durn thing anyway?"

FDV2: "The only true account all about Mr. Earwicker & the Snake by an honest woman of the world who can only tell the naked truth about a dear man and all his conspirators how they tried to fall him by putting it all around Lucalizod by a mean sneak about E-- and a dirty pair of sluts, showing to all the unmentionableness falsely accused about the redcoats. The proteiform graph itself is a polyexigetical piece of scripture. There was a time when naif alphabetters would have written it down the tracing of a pure deliquescent recidivist possibly ambidexterous, snubnosed, probably, and having a fairly profound rainbowl in his (or her) occiput. Closer inspection of the bordereau would however reveal a multiplicity of personalities inflicted on the provoking document and a prevision of virtual crime or crimes might unwarily be made before any suitable occasion for it or them had arisen. But under the very eyes of the inspector the traits which feature the sympathetic chiaroscuro coalesce, their contrarieties eliminated in a stable somebody, as by the providential warring of housebreaker with heartbreaker, & of dram drinker with freethinker our social something bowls along bumpily through generations, more generations & still more generations. Who in hell wrote the durn thing anyway?"

  2. The Rainbow is in the sky (arc-en-ciel) the Chinese (Chinks) live tranquilly on the Chinese meadowplane (China alone almost of the old continent[s] has no record of a Deluge. Flur in this sense is German. It suggests also Flut (flood) and Fluss (river) and could even be used poetically for the expanse of a waterflood. Flee = free)
  3. The ceiling of his [E] house is in ruins for you can see the birds flying and the floor is full of cracks which you had better avoid
  4. There is merriment above (larks) why should there not be high jinks below stairs?
  5. The electric lamps of the gin palace are lit and the boss Roderick Rex is standing free drinks to all on the 'flure of the house'
  6. He is a bit gone in the upper storey, poor jink. Let him lie as he is (Shem, Ham and Japhet)
  7. The birds (doves and ravens) (cf the jinnies is a cooin her hair and the jinnies is a ravin her hair) he saved escape from his waterhouse and leave the zooless patriark alone.
