Einstein / and Mercury / + / Leverrier's explanation was Vulcan. [AF-I; 13.]

Einstein / BO / Ac to Sir Joseph Larmor, it is only while making his error that Einstein accounts for Mercury. / L.T., Ap. 24, 1923. [AF-I; 14. (London Times, April 24, 1923.)]

Einstein / BO / 2 / Another eclipse result rather for Einstein. / Nature 113-173 / His shifts very smalland found shifts very small. Their extremes were 0.7" and 2.4", but the mean of all was 1.77", about the Einstein value, but with a probable error of 0.5"eclipse observed in Australia, Sept, 1922. [AF-I: 15.1, 15.2. (Nature, 113-173.)]

Einstein / (BO) / As to forced predictions, and loose use of the word, Mr. J.H. Jeans (Nature, 106-79) says, "Thus the hypothesis of relativity predicts that a freely moving planet cannot describe a perfect ellipse around the sun as a focus." This is observing something and then "predicting" that the observed will be seen according to somebody's hypothesis. [AF-I: 16.1, 16.2. Jeans, James Hopwood. “The General Physical Theory of Relativity.” Nature, 106 (February 17, 1921): 791-793, at 793.]

Einstein / BO / For Sir Joseph Larmor's reasons for saying that if were agreement that overthrow the theory because Einstein made mistake ofhad doubled the amount of deflections, ac to his own theory, see L. Times, Ap. 17, 1923. [AF-I; 17. (London Times, April 17, 1923.)]

Einstein / Verified / (BO) / L.T., Ap. 13, 1923 / Ac to Prof. Campbell, of the Lick Observatory, as to eclipse, Australia, Sept., 1922, from 1.86" of arc to 1.59, with mean value of 1.74. / This the Lick Ob. expedition. The other the Australian. [AF-I; 20. (London Times, April 13, 1923.)]

Einstein / Both the M-M and Miller experiments were at the Case School of Applied Science, Cleveland, Ohio. / E. Mec 114-135. [AF-I; 21. (English Mechanic, 114-135.)]

Einstein / Confusion Relativity and also AbsolutismLight as absolute in free space same intensity to all observers. That A passes B at 100 miles an hour and ray of light passes both at same velocity. [AF-I; 23.]

Einstein / Displacement of Solar Lines / Nature 106-789 / See later vols. that not so. [AF-I; 24. St. John, Charles Edward. “The Displacement of Solar Lines.” Nature, 106 (February 17, 1921): 789-790. Earman, John, and, Glymour, Clark. “The Gravitational Redshift As a Test of General Relativity: History and Analysis.” Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A, 11 (no. 3; September 1980): 175-214; at 175, 188, & 196. “Even the ablest expositors of the theory seemed unable to give a clear and cogent derivation of the 'Einstein effect'; indeed, our search of the literature has not turned up a single unproblematic presentation of the correct formula for the red shift prior to the mid 1920s.” “One is tempted to postulate a kind of demonic possession or mass hysteria in order to explain how some of the acutest minds of 20th-century physics, in possession of all the facts needed to arrive at a correct conclusion, could uniformly produce an incorrect or ambiguous result.” “Starting about 1920, it became almost the fashion to obtain experimental results that agreed with Einstein's prediction. Grebe argued that when St. John's correction for the center-edge difference in the red shift was applied, old measurements due to Rowland, Uhler, and Patterson gave Einstein's value for the red shift. Perot published new measurements in agreement with the theory; and Fabry and Buisson reviewed their old measurements, done before Einstein's prediction, and concluded that they were in accord with the theory. It seems likely that this newfound eagerness to obtain experimental confirmation of the red shift was in large part brought about by the announcement of the results of the 1919 English eclipse expedition. But even in the early 1920s, Evershed and St. John did not obtain red shifts conforming to Einstein's requirements.” Spectral lines from the Sun were redshifted, and this phenomenon was sometimes attributed to currents in the solar atmosphere, before Einstein's prediction; yet, when Einstein's theory depended upon light being redshifted by the intense gravity of the Sun, both old and new evidence of redshifted spectral lines were said to confirm Einstein's prediction.]

Einstein / Mercury / He disregarded all discrepancies on motion of perihelia except of Mercury. Ac to movements measured by Newcomb, motion of perihelion of Mars is 6 times the Einstein effect, or effect that Einstein could explain. / Einstein / Eclipse results / For difficulties due to refraction an d differential refraction, see Poor, G vs. R., p. 208. [AF-I: 25.1, 25.2. (Poor. Gravity versus Relativity, p. 208.)]

Einstein / gave 1.75" / Nature 106-786 / May, 1919 / Results described by the Astronomer Royal, Sir Frank Dyson, F.R.S., as "a close verification of Einstein's predicted displacements". / Nature 106-786 / Motion of Mercury's apses. [AF-I; 26. Dyson, Frank. “Relativity and the Eclipse Observations of May, 1919.” Nature, 106 (February 17, 1921): 786-787. “Further, Dr. Crommelin had directed attention to the fact that several comets have approached nearer the sun than paths of the rays of some of the stars photographed at the eclipse, yet their motion has not been retarded, or their substance entirely vaporised, although they were for two hours at this small distance from the sun and moving with a velocity of 300 kilometres a second.” See: Einstein, (AF-I; 18).]

Einstein / Idea of space-time continuum was Minkowski. [AF-I; 27.]

Einstein / Inconsistency / Assumes velocity of light a constant. But it bends in a gravitational field. But in the general theory light bends in a grav. field. / Not a constant because subject to gravitational acceleration. / His disciples sayno inconsistency—"The velocity of light is constant in the absence of gravitation. / Bird—Einstein's Theories of Relativity, p. 180 / But there is one where free of matter or of gravitation. [AF-I: 28.1, 28.2. (Einstein. Theories of Relativity, p. 180.)]

Einstein / Meeting Roy. Astro Soc, Dec 12, 1919, Dr Silberstein pointed out that the star displacements on the plates were not exactly radial, which he took to mean that they were not due to gravity, but to some irregular, refracting medium. / Nature, 104-401 / Campbell's photographs taken in 1918 gave no trace of any displacement of stars scattered around the sun. / Nature, 104-455. [AF-I: 29.1, 29.2. “Discussion on Relativity.” Nature, 104 (December 18, 1919): 400-401. “Physics at the British Association.” Nature, 104 (January 1, 1920): 455.]

Einstein / M-Morley / Nature 115-798 / Experiments by Prof Dayton C. Miller, at Cleveland, Ohio"by a much refined and improved repetition of the so-called Michelson-Morley experiment"showing that there is an apprenticable motion of the earth through the ether. / (Dr Ludwik Silberstein, in Nature, May 23, 1925) / Not like have it thought we think there is any ether but Einstein not so sure. [AF-I: 30.1, 30.2. (Nature, 115-798.) (Nature, May 23, 1925.)]

Einstein / Observations by the British expedition, at Sobral, Brazil, There were radial and non-radial displacements of starsthe radials were 14% in excess of amounts predicted according to Einstein. / Nature105-842. [AF-I; 31. “Societies and Academies.” Nature, 105 (August 26, 1920):  842-844, at 842.]

Ein[stein] / p. 129 [source unidentified] / That a circle is a line of definite, finite length that can be measured. What is the length of a circle? Only when a point is arbitrarily chosen as beginning and ending. [AF-I; 32. (Einstein, p. 129.)]

Einstein / Prof Miller's statement / E. Mec, p. 343, Dec 18, 1925. [AF-I; 33. (English Mechanic, (December 18, 1925, p. 343.)]

Einstein / Sci Amer 131-388 / Prof. Poor vs Einsteinthat observations at eclipses not establish relativitythat to other causes could be attributed bending of light. Other causes for irregularities of Mercuryeffect of masses of matter in space. [AF-I; 34. (Scientific American, n.s., 131-388.)]

Einstein / Section XII can be read as a satire on mathematics. It follows from the Lorentz transformation that moving rods shorten. Then something wrong with the application, or the transformation. / Like saying it follows from principle that all swans are white, that this black swan is white, or that black is white. [AF-I: 35.1, 35.2. ("Section XII" of Unidentified source.)]

Einstein / See "Eclipse" / Index / Eng. Mec. [AF-I; 36. (English Mechanic, ???).]

Einstein / Sk Ho / Ac to Einstein, the motion of Mercury's perihelion is irreconcilable with Newtonism by 43" per century, and is exactly in agreement with Einsteinism. He quotes Leverrier (1859) and Newcomb (1895). Prof Poor, "Gravitation Versus Relativity," p. 188, shows that he misquotes. That Leverrier, in 1859 found 38", and Newcomb in 1895 found 41". b. [AF-I: 37.1, 37.2. (Poor. Gravitation Versus Relativity, 188.)]

Einstein / Sk Ho / BO / According to him if two men are killed by falling together from a very high building, and if he hears of one of the deaths, and then several hours later of the other, then one of the men was killed several hours later than the other. [AF-I; 38. (Ref.???)]

Einstein / SelfIt is not true that to observer on a train, a stone dropped by him seems to fall in a straight line. It does if his eyes only on stone, but if he takes for a reference mark, some mark under on the ground, under it, he will see it describing a line relatively to that such as the man on the embankment sees. / If man on the embankment could concentrate on stone and dropper, he would see it fall in a straight line. [AF-I" 39.1, 39.2. (Ref.???)]

Einstein / Shift of spectral lines / Poor, G vs. R., p. 58 / Grebe and Bachem, at Bonn, found in his favor; and St. John, at Mt Wilson Observatory, found not so. Ac to Poor, St John's equipment far surpassed the ordinary instruments at Bonn. [AF-I; 40. (Poor. Gravitation Versus Relativity, 58)]

Einstein / Star shift in favor of, in Sept, 1923. / Nature 110-541. [AF-I; 41. (Nature, 110-541; wrong volume, too early.)]

Einstein / Absolutism / Makes velocity of light not relatively great but the absolute or final. [AF-I; 42.]

Einstein / After Andromeda / For argument that velocity of light is constant irrespective of motions of its source as determined by light from double stars, see Dr Erwin Freundlich, "The Theory of Relativity,' p. 35. / Data given by him may be interpreted as meaning that light has no velocity, or that so near are the stars that virtually light has no velocity. [AF-I: 43.1, 43.2. Freundlich, Erwin. "The Theory of Relativity, p. 35.)]

Einstein / Confusion / Mixup of observations (per. of Mercury) and suppositions such as consistency of light and shortening of moving bodies. [AF-I; 44.

Einstein / Confusions / Inconsistency / Special theory = velocity of light constant and in a straight line. General theoryvelocity of light not constant and not in a straight line. It is explained that not inconsistent because the special theory is of particular cases where no matter about. / Ac to this there never could be any inconsistency. Someone reports upon a city that no houses in it. Another traveller that full of houses, / No inconsistency because first traveller meant when no people about. / Of course in existence there (is always matter about). [AF-I: 45.1, 45.2. (Ref.???)]

Einstein / Confusions / It is not relativity if our speed going to or from a light ray is not relatively greater. [AF-I; 46.]

Einstein / Confusions / p. 718 / An observer, alone in a chest in space. So no "force" to affect. Einstein wants it attracted by something; so he substitutes a "being" pulling on the chest. Look this up for the unimaginable details. [AF-I; 47. (Unidentified source, p. 718.)]

Einstein / Crux / Rel motion not say which moving. But acceleration or rounding a curve detectable. [AF-I; 48.]

Einstein / Earth / No motion in ether. / Nature 117-308. [AF-I; 49. (Nature, 117-308.)]

Einstein / Fizeau experimentas if Fizeau could send a stream of water through a tube with, to the minutes and degree, a definite and controlled velocityhomgeneity of glass and waterfriction same throughout. / Vicosity? / Same velocity when contact with glass as in interior of stream. No rhythm to the propulsive force of the stream. Etc. / He found veloc if light in a stream increase or decrease as travels, with or against. [AF-IL 50.1, 50.2. (Ref.???)]

Einstein / He takes the velocity of light as if absolutely determined at 186,330 miles a second, as unit velocity by which he can measure t in the same units as X, Y Z. [AF-I; 51.]

Einstein / If rays of light passing sun repelled in sun's gravitational field, meteors passing earth should never fall. [AF-I; 52.]

Einstein / in his book"A 'finite' yet 'unbounded' universe. [AF-I; 53. (Einstein, ???)]

Einsteimn / M. Morley / That all motion relative and no unique ref. system. But earth move rel to ether, that be the absolute criterion or be absolute motion. So M.M. experiment that no motion rel to ether, in his favor. [AF-I; 54.]

Einstein / No distinction whether man in a train travelling north or vanishing land travelling south, Simple disregard of all cases except those he chooses to regard. It happens that land looked at is the passenger's farm. It's running away south at such a rate that he'll never be able to catch up to it, even if he gets out at the next station. [AF-I; 55.]

Einstein / p. 33 / From his erroneous conclusion that time not the same in two systems, he deduces that distances traversed, which had seemed the same, cannot be the same. [AF-I; 56. (Einstein, p. 33.)]

Einstein / Relativity / A man falls from a building. Ac to Einstein, same to him as if earth flying up to meet him. But upon conventional motions of earth and motions not the same, because, if earth flying up, he would partake of its motion and not fall. Or same whether, in a train, train moving or earth moving. This only by isolating a circumstance. Not the same. Capitalists not yet charging for motions of earth, and he pays fare. [AF-I: 57.1, 57.2. (Ref.???)]

Einstein / Relativity and some more / See that it is Absolutism. [AF-I; 58.]

Einstein / Shows a falling stone dif in space to dif observers—then he shows that time diff to dif. observers. Does not show that time of this falling stone dif. to dif observers. Brings in moving light. [AF-I; 59. (Einstein; Ref.???)]

Einstein / Simply Classicism remote from conditions of existence / uniform motions / Somebody in a spacious chest, utterly remote from all other things.—Absolutely rigid bodies, whether he uses word rigid or not. Anyway, never speak of a somewhat nearly rigid body. Constant forces, as if never heard of rhythm of al forces. [AF-I: 60.1, 60.2.]

Einstein / Special / One ref. system good as another or must find an absolute. [AF-I; 61.]

Einstein / That if X moves past Y, is just as much Y moving past X? But then he says X is shortening in directions of motion. Why not Y shortening as much as X? [AF-I; 62.]

Einstein / Universal / He applies his transformation from one set or co-ordinates to another, to "events which constitute the Processes of nature". / Einstein, Relativity, p. 50 / He goes on to include "every general law of nature. [AF-I: 63.1, 63.2. (Einstein. Relativity, p. 50.)]

Einstein / (+) / Velocity of light the same to A coming as B going, rel to the system of earth, because measuring units shorten in direction of motion, as seen by the other. / Time lengthens as seen by the other. [AF-I; 64.]

Einstein / Vel of Light as the limit or Absolute—Laplace has shown that gravitational effects have a velocity many times that of light. [AF-I; 65. Laplace, Pierre-Simon. Œuvres Complètes de Laplace. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1891, v. 8, 227. "Partant, h égale environ 960000 fois la distance du Soleil à la Terre, et, comme la lumière emploie huit minutes à peu près à venir du Soleil à nous, il suit que la vitesse du corpscule N est 7 680 000 fois plus grande que celle de la lumière, en sorte qu’il faudrait que la Lune se précipitât sur la Terre avec cette vitesse, pour ne point éprouver, au premier instant de sa chute, l’action de la pesanteur."  Laplace, Pierre-Simon. Bowditch, Nathaniel, trans. Mécanique Céleste. Boston: Little and Brown, 1839, v. 4, 644-645. "Reducing this expression of i' to numbers, we shall find that the velocity of the fluid producing gravitation will be about seven millions of times greater than that of light; and as it is certain that the moon's secular equation depends almost wholly upon the cause we have assigned in the sixth book, we must suppose that the gravitating fluid has a velocity which is at least a hundred millions of times greater than that of light; or at least we must suppose, in its action on the moon, that it has at least that velocity to counteract her gravity towards the earth. Therefore mathematicians may suppose, as they have heretofore done, that the velocity of the gravitating fluid is infinite."]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / Ac to Einsteinism, the theories of Einstein are profoundly true if you see them from the Einstein viewpoint, and profoundly nonsensical, if you see them from some other set of delusions. [AF-I; 66.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / becoming younger (See bending time.) / If it were not for the absolutism that Einstein mixes into his relativism, his would be a theory of something of the kind. If one could move with a velocity greater than light, one would become younger, but the velocity of light is an absolute and ac. to him, cannot be exceeded. [AF-I: 67.1, 67.2.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / Einstein / With equal validity someone else could take as a basis that things instead of becoming shorter in time of motion, become sweeter, more cheerful, or etc., instead of shorter. [AF-I; 68.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / Einstein accepted by astronomers because gave the support of electromagnetic theories to astronomic theories. [AF-I; 69.]

Einstein / Sk Ho / Confusion / All motion is related. Motion of light is not relative. [AF-I; 70.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / Einstein disregards. To one who believes this earth is moving, an apple in a tree is changing in space and also in timealso it is changing in temperature, color and flavorIf a dimension is a field of description, this apple exists in at least seven dimensions. Because of its disregards, Einsteinism is only one-seventh of a desscription. We have had seeming evidence of Providence, but never before of a purely beneficient Providence. Here it is clearly by the mercy of God that Einstein did not befoozle us with a seven-dimensional theory. [AF-I: 71.1, 71.2, 71.3.]

Einstein / Sk Ho / His postulate that light has same velocity from a body either coming or going may be interpreted as meaning that light had no velocity, or no detectable velocity. [AF-I; 72.]

Einstein / Sk Ho / May be argued that M-M detected no motion of earth because the earth is stationary. / That Miller did detect motion of earth because he wanted to detect motion of the earth. [AF-I; 74.]

Einstein / Sk Ho / No "means". The Einstein formullas are inflexible. [AF-I; 75.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / Einstein says is no Absolute motion. Says proved by M-Morley that no motion relatively to the ether. We agree that motion is relative. If the ether the Absolute, how could be motion relatie to theAbsolute? That would make the Absolute relative to the motion. ?That there may be something that corresponds to a relative absolute, as it were,will be our expression. But in conventional metaphysics the Absolute is the Absolute and the relative is the relative. [AF-I: 76.1, 76.2.]

[Einstein] / Sk Ho / There is nothing said by Einstein (Einstein, Relativity, p. 153) of mean values. the angle of defflection is set down by him at 1.7 seconds of arc. It is the same as somebody predicting that all persons who pass a given point in a street will weigh 170 pounds, and finding confirmation from disciples who say that though some infants and some whoppers went by, their mean weight was almost exactly 170 pounds. It is very much like saying that as to a delicatessen store in which some very old cheeses have been received, all persons in the street will be driven seventeen feet awayfinding that some take to the curbstone, and that some sniff blissfully and virtually stand still, pondering whether to go into the store and spend some money or not, but that the mean result of avoiders and sniffers is a repulsion of almost exactly seventeen feetdisregarding that in the prediction nothing was said of a mean result. [AF-I: 77.1 to 77.5. (Einstein. Relativity, p. 153.)]

(Einstein) / Having made space relative, he tries to show that time is relativeor that simultaneity in one system is not sim in another, or that the embankment are not sim on the train. He does this by making products of events the same as the events. Rule out the lightning flashes that are impossible to measure. Try sound. To Einstein, they are simultaneous if heard simultaneously.

Gravitation is a constantsame for a feather or lump of lead, if start with same velocity. So then, grav depending on place started, grav seems attribute of space, and not of a body.

But as a consequence of the deflection of hght from the star by the sun, the star will be seen in the direction D2, i.e. at a somewhat greater distance from the centre of the sun than corresponds to its real position." "In practice, the question is tested in the following way. The stars in the neighbourhood of the Sun are photographed during a solar eclipse." "In addition, a second photograph of the same stars is taken when the sun is situated at another portion in the sky, i.e. a few months earlier or later. As compared with the standard photograph, the positions of the stars on the eclipse-photograph ought to appear displaced radially outwards (away from the centre of the sun) by an amount corresponding to the angle α."]

Einstein / (+) / Universe is, in space, infinite (p. 125). Stars in vastly different groupng, but as there are stars everywhere, the density of matter is, on the average, everywhere the same. / (+)—We can average anything finite. If a trillion groupings of stars, find their average. How will Einstein find the average of an infinite number? [MB-I: 359., 359.2. Einstein, Albert. Lawson, Robert William, trans. Relativity: The Special and the General Theory. New York: Holt, 1920, 125. "As regards space (and time) the universe is infinite. There are stars everywhere, so that the density of matter, although very variable in detail, is nevertheless on the average everywhere the same. In other words: However far we might travel through space, we should find everywhere an attenuated swarm of fixed stars of approximately the same kind and density." This concept contrasts with Newton's finite universe surrounded by empty space.]

Einstein / Sk Ho / What we consider the mistake of Einstein and the metaphysicians, or of Einstein and the other metaphysicians and the theologians, is the idea of trying to explain in terms of the Absolute, whether under the name of a final axis of co-ordinates, a constant velocity, a final Generalization, the Ether, Jehovah, or Allah. They feel that nothing can be absolutely explain[ed] except by reference to this Absolute. This would be relating to the Unrelatable. All explanation is the expression of something in terms of something else. But the Absolute is not something else, besides the thing one is trying to explain. [MB-I: 361.1, 361.2, 361.3.]

Exper / Oct. 15, 1929 / I was looking over these notes and called Annie from the kitchen to discuss them. I note that A had been doing nothing in kitchen; she had just come in. Had gone to the kitchen to see what the birds were doing. While discussing these falling pictures, we heard a loud sound and ran back and found on the floor a pan that had fallen from a pile of utensils in a closet. [AF-II: 58.1, 58.2.]

[Exper] / Oct 18, 1930 / I tried an experiment. I read these notes over to A. to see whether there would be a repetition of the experience of Oct 15, 1929. / Nothing fell anywhere. [AF-II; 59.]

Exper / 1926 / Nov. 4 / This is worth noting. Last night I noted about the pictures because earlier in the evening, talking over psychic experiences with France and others, I had mentioned them. Tonight I came home, and Annie told me of a loud sound that had been heard, Annie telling how welcome it was to her because it had interrupted Eileen in a long undesired story about a moving picture. Late A. cried: "Here's what made the noise!" A picture in the front had fallen. All that I noted now is that glass not broken, though a loud sound. Note—I did not mention about pictures to A. I took that note after she went to bed. / Looked at picture—cord broken, with frayed ends. Picture, with glass front, 2½ by 2 feet. [AF-II: 60.1 to 60.4.]

[Exper] / 1926 / + / Nov. 4 / Nov. 5—I have not strongly enough empasized Annie's mental state at time of the picture-fall. Eileen's long account of a moving picture had annoyed her to attraction, and her hope for an interruption or a check of some kind was keen. She must have seized upon the picture matter so abruptly as to give offense. There was offense of some kind taken. This morning, for the first time in several years, the Maughams coming down the stairs did not say "Good morning" to us.  [AF-II: 61.1, 61.2.]

Exper / Oct. 22, 1924 / Yesterday, I was, in the front room, thinking casually of the pictures that fell from the wall. This evening, my eyes bad. Unable to read. Was sitting, staring at the kitchen wall, fiddling with a piece of string, anything to pass away time. I was staring right at a picture on wall, above corner of bureau where the notes are, but having no consciousness of the picture. It felll, hit the notes, and dropped to the floor, the frame at corner was broken, glass not broken. Cord broke some inches from one of the fastenings on back of picture. But there should have been from this fastening a dangling piece of cord. This missing and I can't find it. / As to circs—Don't know that ever before so sat staring, doing nothing—always reading in evening. [AF-II; 64.1, 64.2, 64.3.]

As to unbroken glass—this picture like the other fell on magazines, etc., in the corner. The picture cord is very strong. Capt. C could not have broken it. It was not cut. [AF-II: 67.1, 67.2.]

Ex / 1924 / Ap. 18 / A third picture—this one on the wall directly behind me. This morning Annie took it down to wash the glass of it—London smoke—Something peculiar about the way it came down—she said—"Another picture cord rotten. But she said—"No: the nail came out." But the nail was still in the wall. I said nothing—don't like to stir up mysteries—Later she said—"I don't understand how that picture came down." I have not discussed—since the first time—picture-mysteries with her. I am very credulous, it seems, but I don't like making my credulity conspicuous. [AF-II: 68.1, 68.2, 68.3.]

Exper / 1926 / Nov. 3 / It occurs to me to note that since the last picture fell, there has been no other fall. Later—That's bad English but that the way I wrote it. [AF-II; 69.]

Exper / March 18, 1924 / Written on 19th—ab. 5 p.m., I was sitting in the corner where the picture fell; where I always sit. Upon top pane of glass, corner nearest where picture was, came a startling cracking sound on the glass. It was so sharp and loud that for hours afterward I had a sense of alertness to dodge missiles. It was so loud that Mrs. Cook upstairs heard it. / Diagonally across the corner of the upper glass is a crack, and Annie is sure that boys in a courtyard threw a stone, but that small crack is old and,

by markings around it, I so assured myself this morning. / For a month or so Annie has been remarking upon a faded appearance of the wallpaper over where the picture fell. [AF-II: 70.1, 70.2, 70.3.]

Ex / March 28, 1924 / This morning, I found a second picture on the floor on "the corner". Its place was about three feet above a bureau upon which were piled my boxes of notes. / [illustration] / There are 8 boxes containing about 16,000 notes. It seems clear that the picture did not ordinarily fall, or there would have been a heartbreaking mess of notes all over the floor. The glass in it was not broken. This time, the cord and not a ring was broken. I quickly tied the broken cord and put the picture back. I suppose I should have had Annie for a witness. Partly I did not want to alarm her and partly I did not want her to tell and start a ghost scare centering around me. [AF-II: 71.1, 71.2, 71.3.]

Exper / July 26, 1924 / Heard a sound downstairs. Then Fannie called up: Mrs Fort, did you hear that? A picture fell right off the wall. [AF-II; 72.]

Exper / March 11, 1924 / I was reading last night in the kitchen, when I heard a thump. Sometimes I am not easily startled, and I looked around in a leisurely manner, see that a picture had falle, glass not broken, picture falling on a pile of magazines. Two lace curtains sides of window. Picture fell at foot of left curtain. Now according to my impression the bottom of the right curtain was vigorously shaken several seconds—appreciable time after the fall. I supposed the string of the picture had rotted away. Morning of the 12th, find that one brass ring had been broken in 2 places and the metal nright at the fractures. Annie reminded me that upstairs 2 pictures had fallen recently. [AF-II: 73.1, 73.2, 73.3.]

[AF-II; 76. Dreiser's novel was An American Tragedy.]

Exper. / Oct. 25, 1924 / Looking over the Weekly Budget—summer, 1869—felt I was coming to a shower of frogs. This seemed impossible because have looked over more than 20 pubs. of 1869. In a few pages came to shower of frogs. [AF-II; 77. See: 1869 July 31, (III: 1968 & 2033).]

Exper / 1926 / July 17 / After leaving Library, where I had been reading "The Spiritualist" and nothing else. / In Post Office, I asked for a package of stamped envelopes. There was something, a hesitancy, in the clark's manner that attracted my attention. I said to self, "You had better count your change: he is going to make a mistake," He gave me the change and said—"No: you want sixpence more." Then—No—I have given you a shilling too much." Counted it—shilling too much. / But there wasn't any mysterious voice that whispered to me. I think the clerk was preoccupied and that I noticed it. [AF-II: 78.1, 78.2, 78.3.]

Exper / 1926 / + / Aug 19 / I looked over Ev. News crosswords puzzle and had an idea of a new kind, or one that would tell a story. Ab. 4 hours later got the Standard. In it was a new kind of puzzle, one that told a story. [AF-II; 79.]

Exper / Ap 18, 1927 / Yesterday, I was thinking of Prof. Will Durant, with whom, ten years ago, I had an experience. I have read nothing about him in say 8 or 9 years. This morning I read of him as engaged by a newspaper to report a murder-trial. [AF-80; 80. Will Durant was reporting the Ruth Brown Snyder and Henry Judd Gray murder trial for the New York Evening Telegram.]

Exper / 1927 / April 27 / Yesterday it occurred to me that it was a long time since Annie had a nightmare. Last night she had one. [AF-II; 81.]

E / 1927 / Aug 20 / Had a dream last night. I picked up a literary magazine, and read a long and unfavorable review of my book, which had been published without my knowledge. Chief point against me was that many seeming instances may not indicate a generalization, but be only coincidences. [AF-II: 82.1, 82.2.]

Exper / Oct 6, 1927 / Before going to Library, I thinking of conventional endings of all stories, thought of History, and asked—when did the Civil War end? / In Library, soon after arriving, saw—LT Index, 1870, 1st vol., p. 44—"When did the American war close?" [AF-II; 83. (London Times, Index, 1st. vol., p. 44.)]

Exper / 1927, Oct 8 / I found in "L" train some saving certificates, lost by a girl in Middle Village, L.I. Had never before heard of this place. I today look up the Fresh Pond Crematory. I'm going to be cremated. It is in Middle Village. The finding of the certificates rather remarkable. I went in 1st car of the train. Few persons there, and sat near a corner. I put down 3 or four library books. When I picked them up, the envelope seemed to me not under them but between two of them. I had seen nothing. The envelope was colored rather like the cane seat. [AF-II: 84.1, 84.2, 84.3.]

Experience / Nov. 25, 1927 / Probably some mysteries are matters of absent-mindedness. Before I went out for newspaper this morning, I opened the window of my workroom. After breakfast I went in and found it shut. Annie had not shut it. It is impossible for me to recall having shut it, or having gone in the room. The window is ot easy to shut. Sometimes—not often—I am absent-minded to small degree. I think that I could shut a small, easily moved window without remembering. I noted that when I opened the window, I thought that the draught might blow around some notes in boxes on the table, near the window. However the notes were secure enough in the boxes and I did nothing about it. If not case of absent-mindedness, maybe a psychic self of mine worried over the notes and shut the window. [AF-II: 85.1 to 85.4.]

Exper / Dec 10, 1927 / I have a strong impression of having been somewhere yesterday where, handling a pencil sharpener, like mine, except that it had a red advertisement on it instead of yellow, I pulled it apart, and to a little embarassment, could not put it together again. It may have been a dream, but I have never confounded remembrances of dreams and of waking experiences. Yesterday, I was in the house all day, and at night went to the Library, to two rooms, where, for all I know, there may be pencil sharpeners. I did not touch them. Several weeks ago, I noticed on a book-stand, a cover of a magazine, with a picture of Colleen More on it, and had an impression of, the day before or a day or so before, having looked, from a window, at a bookstand, at this picture. I know of no such window. [AF-II: 86.1 to 86.4.]

Exper / 1928 / Feb 21 / I dreamed last night good deal about dreiser—but can't recall. Tonight read he back from Russia. [AF-II; 87.]

Exper / Ap 14, 1928 / Yesterday, I was wondering whether some day whole house be heated without janitors or furnaces. Today Annie told me of a circular that been lying around, but that we not seen, of automatic heating devices for houses. [AF-II; 88.]

Exper / Ap. 24, 1928 / Passing the Hippodrome today, I noticed that the Lee Kids were playing in vaudeville. No impression upon my mind. Remember little about them and have a prejudice against kid-actors. At a picture, tonight, Annie said to me: "What's become of the Lee Kids?" She hadn't seen them in, anyway, 6 years. [AF-II: 89.1, 89.2. Jane Lee and Katherine Lee were child actors, who when appearing together in vaudeville and short comedy films, (the last ones in 1922), were often billed as the "Lee Kids."]

Exper / June 2, 1928 / Annie said to me: "I had a dream that made me very sad. I dreamed that you told me you could not see with one of your eyes." All day yesterday I had been alarmed more than ever before by a dimming of my right eye. I had said nothing about it. I seldom tell Annie disagreeable matters. I note that last night we went to a picture of a man who became blind—in both eyes. His name was Charlie. So Annie's dream from that? Or a combination? [AF-II: 90.1, 90.2.]

Exper / June 7, 1928 / I was thinking about prize-fighting, Two men ahead of me were passing each other. They were acquaintances. One put up fists. Other too. They sparred sportively in passing. [AF-II; 91.]

Exper / July 30, 1928 / Two days ago, I found a dollar bill in the street. I did not tell Annie, simply because it has for years been habitual with me to repress telling little things that I feel urged to tell. The bill was crumpled into a wad and my mind was on this, becuase if anybody should ask me about it, I was going to say that if he'd describe it right he could have it. Today Annie, in a nap, had a dream. A beggar asked her for 3 dollars. She borrowed from a woman and crumpled the bills before giving them. Asked why dshe did this, she said: "Oh, just to take the crispness off them." [AF-II: 92.1, 92.2, 92.3.]

Exper / Aug 19, 1928 / Anything to do with my writing and thinking about mysterious showers? A week ago, I was driven from my bedroom by a dripping soundat intervals of a minute or more. Kept me awake, I went to the divan in the alcove. Here the sound seemed localized in a table or wall near a table. Next night I went back to my room. Sound kept me awake. Called to Annie to get up and come to hear it. I got scolded for this but she came and she heard it, just as I did. There is no plumbing, this side of the house. In the alcove, it is not so loud. I sleep pretty well. I have never heard it in the daytimenever except when I go to bed, and after. [AF-II: 93.1, 93.2, 93.3.]

Ex / Sept 14, 1928 / Drip was going on when I went in my bedroom. I had paper and pencil. I haven't the intervals right, because time was used in settingdown the records. I'd begin counting at 3 or 4, to make allowances. I started much faster than last nighthad to keep that up. / 23-24-20-19-20-16-14-14-17-19-19-19-17-29(?)-17-13-21-20-21-26-23-25-27-26-29-13-25-30-52-29-31-59-24-24. [AF-II: 94.1, 94.2.]

Exper / Sept 10, 1928 / I woke up, last night, and the dripping sound was going on. It soon stopped. [AF-II; 95.]

Ex / Aug-Sept, 1928 / During the day I go and lie on the bed often, when I take a rest, or want to think out a problem. But I have never heard the drip, except nights, when I go to bed, or later. [AF-II; 96.]

[Exper] / Later / Aug., 1928 / This was one of the experiences that end up with the commonplace ending. The mystery was that the sound was heard only when I went to bed, nights. I learned that my alarm clock made this tapping sound only when newly wound up. [AF-II: 97.1, 97.2.]

Exper / Aug 20, 1928 / I was visualizing the male parrot escaping, and the trouble of gettinghim again. Heard a screech and a call from Anniemale bird missing. Then we found him in the dark in the hall, where, something frightening him, he had flown. I am writing immediately. I think there was a small interval between the visualizing and the occurrence. (Becky escaped Aug 28.) [AF-II: 98.1, 98.2.]

Exper / Sept 23, 1928 / I don't know whether there is anything mysterious about this or not. My right eye is dimming so the glass of my spectacles no longer serves. I have put off getting a new lens. Last night, I found my reading specs with the ear piece broken off right lens. I cannot explain how this occurred. [AF-II;: 99.1, 99.2.]

Exper / 1929 / March 4 / I was playing Big Checkers, about 200 men on a side. I made a formation, which I remembered, because I wanted it to be of the strength I made it, of reds. / [illustration] / After the game I noticed that the checker marked "X" was white.

Ex / 1932 / Jan. 22 / This morning, in the street next to ours, I noticed the ugly, leafless trees, from which branches had been cut, and wondered whether worth while to get advantages during the summer for this appearance of mutilation, all winter. I returned to our street and noticedwhether I knew it before or notthat the trees here had been similarly treated. I noticed much of new growths in these trees, and wondered if they'd be clipped. We have been here two years, and I have seen no treatment of any kind, of trees. About three hours later, I looked out the window, and on both sides of the street, saw men sent by the City department, pruning the trees. In the other streetas well as this streetthere was probably considerable feeling against pruning or disfiguring the trees. Annie stood at the window watching the men, angrily, though no tree was her tree. It is as if I received angry vibrations froms somebody who knew that the trees would be clipped.
