THE TECHNICIAN WRITES ME

one of the amazonian workers, brandishing a little poisoned dart - the sting. The story broke off abruptly in the middle of a sentence, and it could never be continued, for after the death of the narrator there was no longer anyone in the world who knew how to write.
It was ingenious and, if not perfectly written, at least fairly well done. The story about the regiment was very Kiplingesque and it, too, had qualities; it illustrated a high but at the same time realistic idea of the art of leadership. But the rest were feeble, and the collection on the whole gave the impression of a work lacking in cohesion. No doubt it was the individual stories that mattered, but the volume didn't have that unity of tone possessed by a collection of Kipling's stories or of Maupassant's. I had the wisdom to realize this, and I went to see my printer and told him sadly that I had given up the idea of publishing the book and that he could distribute the type. He tried to dissuade me, but my critical instinct won out.
`Run off at least a dozen copies,' he said to me. `That won't cost you much more
To this I consented, and of that first endeavour of mine all that remains is a dozen slender volumes bound in covers of pale blue on which there is neither title nor author's name.
There remained, too, a feeling of despair which no one around me noticed, for I could be very secretive and I did not like complaints. `Now', I thought, `it's over and done with. I shall sink little by little into this life of routine. For three years, five years, ten years, the impulse given me by Alain and Stendhal will still have some effect. Then inertia will win out. Like the Uncles, I shall no longer talk of anything except machines and cloth and salaries. An old and respected millionaire, I shall succeed Paul Fraenckel as president of the Chamber of Commerce. Each morning I shall make a tour of the workshops as my father does until the day when I, in my turn, shall be stricken, having lived out in this sepulchre my brief and only life. ..' When I gave myself up to this reverie I would spend frightful evenings over an open book which I could not read, and for a while this despair turned me toward the frivolous social life of the community which I had hitherto neglected in favour of my evening studies.
