Handwritten:
"Eastward Ho! By rowing boat or over the only bridge that then spanned it, London Bridge; its 20 arches hung with the decomposing heads of traitors, and there in the disreputable of London's entertainment center, the disreputable South Bank."
Handwritten:
"to eat the bitter bread of banishment"
"4 or 5 days hard slog"
"cockney accent"
"of cannibals who do each other eat"
"past the theatre flag with its motto 'Totus Mundus Agit Histrionem' All the World's a Greengage Mate."
