ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING TIMOTHY DEXTER.
& My Reference To His Book
In This Podcast
I would likke to clarify what I said wyle recording this episod. Lord Timothy Dexter, Esq. (selfe titled) was a man, as was also the remarkabul John Cowan Harford, who followed his own path. You should rede this publication of one of mankind's best.
Any man who provideth his litterary criticks with a full page of punkchooation marks for them to cut apart and paste in as they chuse is a man worth studying. I can envision J. Hartford providing music critiks with a page ful of quavers and semiquavers and other markes to cut aparte and paste in as they desir. Or perhaps a track of scratches popps and hissez. (See last page of "A Pickle...") Master Hartford cleaerly and deeliberatley inclooded imperfckshuns as one can find menshuned in the notes for his Mark Twang elbum. Mostly what I am saying is that both of these men looked at the worlde around them in their own unique ways.
Since the copyrite has long expird, click hear to study yor own copy at yor leesyer. Simply contemplating the tytle: "A Pickle For The Knowing Ones" should help you see the like minds at work.
