Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original

the reader to observe that you cannot dip into this text, at any
point, with any of these primal root-numbers, 505, 513, 516 or 523,
without unearthing a story which coheres perfectly with the
narrative told by the other numbers. And this has been one cause of
the delay in publishing my book. I have been tempted to go on and
on, working out the marvelous tale; and I have heaps of fragments
which I have not now time to put into shape for publication. I have

therein, and then carry the remainder to 457, and thence down as
before. And my Lord is much the same; my is again 112 less 50 (from
the end of scene second downward), carried up 76:2; and Lord is 112
less 49, from the beginning of scene third, carried down 76:1.
