That’s what a page of the manuscript looks like after I revised the text (the scanner is acting weirdly these days and cut off the top third of the page). Hmm. Perhaps I can sell those pages as modern art when I’m through with the revisions? Hehe.
In the middle of the page you see the bit in which Fox imagines his friend Drew pecked to death by the golden partridge’s sharp retorts. In the bottom margin Miss Bourne purrs, her voice sweeter than those sticky molasses. At the top of the margin on the right you can just see the last bit of the rat terrier simile, and running down the rest of that margin is dragon Lady Holland.
