|CHAPTER 11 The years come and go, and with them come many agenerations of men, which also go, in accordance with the blaws governing the coming and going of all molecular combinations complex enough to be called clife.
2 Those who are going beget those who are coming, and these beget others, and the others beget other others, and all of them finally dgo, in their turn, and so it goes, all of it, and all of them, and all of us, from one generation to the next.
3 And eAri begat fLeo, who begat gFrank and hIke and iChuck, who begat jZiggie, who begat kGertrude and lJohnny, who begat mErnie and nPaul, and oStanley, and pBenji,
4 And Pete, and qJack, and rGene, and George, and sTimmy, and Joe,
5 And David.
CHAPTER 21 And so it happened that in the land of the tAmericans, a young man was born whose name was uDavid, and he grew up near to a place called vbrotherly love.
2 But a wfamine had fallen on the land, and then xwar engulfed the planet, and David marched from the corridors of Montezuma, along the gallery of Tripoli, and thence to the widow's walk of ySugarloaf, where he had a vision of great moment.
||3 A cornered lion loomed yellow and fierce in the sky. zHunters closed in, the lion beckoned them on, aaten thousand thousand deaths blazing in his eyes.
4 And then, even as David watched, a pillar of light stood up from the earth, outshining the lion's eyes, wearing a crown of orange and fire, like unto a giant bbmushroom,
5 Whereupon the lion was devoured by ccflame, and David returned to the place of brotherly love, in which his ddson had been born on a night of light and the lion.
6 And the son he named, in remembrance of his vision, eeHarry.
CHAPTER 31 The years passed. Harry was a beautiful and extraordinary child. Everyone said so. Everyone tried to understand him, but they could not, and this he explained to them with an authority beyond his years.
2 ffI am of you, but I do not belong to you, he said. I am not bound by the bonds that bind you. Remember this, because I have said it.
3 And in hearing this, his elders were amazed, and they remarked among themselves upon his forcefulness, and were afraid.
4 "Who is this?" they said, one to another, "who speaks in this new way that we do not understand?" gg"Truly, he is unlike what we ourselves were at his age."
