    Note: Author's note: Written after the author had fallen down and concussed his cranium, an event which had induced in him an overwhelming fear that the fall might portend a paralytic stroke, which in turn had induced a still more overwhelming dread that he might have to live on with his Olympian beauty somewhat marred.
