pt 4, ll.6 ff. (ts 35): The following changed version is suggested by pencil in ts, with a marginal note, too many sibilants, referring to the typed (and eventually published) version.  The handwriting does not seem to be BL's.  `But the point I would make does not lie in this outburst of joy but in the antecedent desire and effort that it betrays.  For if the typical scientist's delight in his success is more restrained, ...'

pt 18, l. 16 (ts 57): `... he can say that the rest of the problem is just routine.'  Changed by hand in ts.

pt 19, l. 7 (ts 58): The section, 4. Inverse Insight, began in ts, `So far we have been asking questions that can be answered.  How can one tell whether a crown is made ...' These words are crossed out at the bottom of p. 58 of ts, and the section begins anew on p. 59, which is in a darker carbon, and where the division title is not added by hand but appears in the typescript itself.

pt 27, l. -10 (ts p. 70-71): `Because particular places and particular times possess no immanent intelligibility of their own ...' Crossed out in ts, and replaced by what is in pt.

pt 31, l. -13 (ts p. 74--third 74 of three): ts puts a comma after `is'--here quite appropriate.
