Verso: "1 "Then, Mr. DeGoatis." Said the head of the firm of the great paper manufacturers. "you will commence your duties as manager tomorrow morning." Little did Walter DeGoatis think that as this vast factory, he at last found himself fin the women's department. There, hip-high in the reeking rags. Grimy, yet graceful stood Marier. She was the most beautiful creature he had ever beheld. // 3 Their eyes met, his filled with uncontrollable, undisguised, helpless, passionate, sudden first love, hers with lust, and a consciousness that the new manager had found her skulking on her work. She blushed a lovely cardinal red. (The short: it was a "dead" [mash]." ED) // [Fourth passage scribbled out] // Yes."
