Derived from a page (and preceding line) of Gertrude Stein's "A Long Gay Book" (A Stein Reader, edited by Ulla E. Dydo, last line of 240 thru 241--determined by a logarithm table) via Charles O. Hartman's program DIASTEX5, his latest automation of one of my diastic procedures developed in 1963, using the 4th paragraph of the source as seed, and subsequent editing: some exisions of words and changes of word order, tense, and suffixes within lines and additions of capitals, periods, and spaces. (Each of two pairs of output lines were combined as single sentences.)
