PROMPT: it takes all kinds

It takes all kinds of fancy work to make a voltage sleeper. Send a telegram—there is no time for flowers yet. Tell Laura everything. Suppress any note; the world is ignorant of her history. And tell her it is a horror to her to hear Philip Sterling talk—the damned fool.

N.B. Only a hint of it is here. Philip has been working at the machine for three years; for that is normal for engineers. They usually give the machine their absolute stamp—usually on letters; usually on commercial necessities; for business matters they give solemnly that stamp, that stamp, always. Philip got the largest and most impressive one of these messages, before he knew that he was growing old and wise.

I suppose there’s no harm in that, since it shows off Turkiness of Soul and Concept. That thing tells about the power of the pure intellectual and the contempt for the crude vulgar.

O.M. He knows his business
