{ms, 1}

By no pomp of pride or mark of mightiness is the wellbeing of a people more surely proven than by |1its tribute of1| solicitude for its own continuance nor can we ever nor can we justly nor can we with justice esteem a nation, which sets small store by and where this quality either is lacking or is set small store by we cannot with justice esteem a nation so little provident, however wide |1be the dominion her realm1|, be |1it she1| ruled never so wisely. For what boots it to gather and to garner if none or weakling be to for none, or weaklings shall come after? Or what is that wisdom, to extol his meat above the man himself, the dead which |1sustains serves for1| life above the living, which death should serve? Plainly |1nought and1| no. If care for progress be absent in vain |1was the house raised and the hearthstone laid to cheer were the rooftree raised|a, to shelter ita| or threshold laid1|.

Yet what boon of all can |1equal vye with1| the bounty of increase. Where it is found the land teems |1with produce1|, where not, is bare: or the barren heath and hillside, this but that the abundant wheatfield of heavy awns, the fertile loam |1of fallows1|, the herds numbered and blessed. So was it |1said |apromised commandeda|1| to |1Abraham the patriarch to1| increase and multiply and it was promised |1him1| his seed should not fail but be numerous: Sacred then and even the pagans saluted on meeting amid the press a matron with child for, if command and promise from |1above on high1| warrant and if the wise of mankind at all times and everywhere establish it, |1for (and1| even the rudest know this |1awe, awe),1| |1sacred revered1| |1above all else should be motherhood motherhood should be above all else1| and its abode a temple |1inviolable inviolate1|.

|1This Such1| was, |1by concurrent witness, witness the writers of Story,1| the practice in our land from the earliest times where leechcraft was ever held high in honour. Not to The sick, the wayfarer, the stricken were the objects of wise care. Not to speak of their hostels, their sweating chambers |1& leperyards |aand plaguegravesa|1|, their houses of sorrow, their greatest leeches: as the |1O'Shiels Shiels |athan whom none was wisera|1|, the O'Lees and the O'Hickeys with many others, record in their books the lore of herbs and |1maladies with their1| cures as we may read even now with much instruction how the trembling hand was |1cured made whole1| and how the withering
{ms, 2}
the boyconnell too and the wave or loose flux. Now surely in such and so varied learning we shall not miss a tender care for birth. And in fact |1it is so so it was1|. Before born the babe |1was blessed had bliss1|. Within the womb he won worship. |1Food and couch A couch and food1| were |1ready set1| for her than should bear him and |1cleanness clean clothes1| and the service of midwives and what drugs were needed or surgical tools in the high bright wellbuilt fair home of mothers when|1, being |athena| far gone,1| she |1came there drew thither1| to lie in, |1far gone,1| her |1time near term |aaccomplished comea|1|.

Nor has this |1usage failed in wont stopped short of1| our time. The |1Coombe hospital, the Rotunda hospitals of the Coombe, Rotunda of the National Maternity Hospitals1|, |1are |arise standa|1| among us, where day |1after following1| day |1is fostered1| the neverfailing fount of life |1is fostered1| |1and so so that1| the tale of creatures |1does shall1| not |1ever1| lessen, for nature renews it |1ever from of1| her bounty which gives giving, if but to her one gift be given, |1her an1| hundredfold yield. In this greater than we and in her strength greater for the earth will suffer that chasms to rend her |1loins1| and the sea to be sundered to her depths and yet show no worse, so strong |1is nature in them in them is nature1|, while her chief child faints under a light load, wailing comes to birth and is |1borne born1| with |1as a child of bondchild into1| woe. But woe |1to unto1| them that know not |1this such1| woe. Sweet woe whereof joy comes. |1If hallowed was |aHallowed is If halloweda|1| the ground where |1our dead are laid lie our dead1| thrice hallowed |1should that house be be that house1| where life |1comes burgeons1| to new life, love |1to fruition |aflowers |bhas flower and fruit bears fruit and flowerb|a|1|.

Nine years |1|acircling wheelinga|1| since then were flown. Gently he pressed, knowing the pangs of birth, fearful to bring fear. Pity led him and led on with lust to wander though awe withheld.

Of that house |1Andrew A.1| Horne is |1lord master1|. He goes |1And there There1| are the white spotless couches set, |1seventy in all (three score and ten)1|, with |1pillars posts1| of shining gold to give rest to his seventy charges, |1the those1| pregnant mothers. |1Betimes1| He goes forth |1betimes1| on his round bringing to life, healing, with hands of comfort and he rejoices to look upon his home where those wombs await him. |1Their eyes turn towards him |aAll their eyes turn towards him ever towards him their eyes turna|1| for |1they long1| to be delivered and |1more1| to bring forth |1they long1|.

|1Two guardians are there Watchers 2 there are1|, nurse Callan |1and nurse with Hester1| Quigley.

The old they still, sustain the young, in twelve months thrice five hundred they. Vigilant |1ever for a at every1| sign |1they move softly softly they move1|.

Softly the |1halldoor opened |aheavya| portal swung open1| of the house and to Bloom greeting whiterobed nurse Callan |1answered with fair words with fair words answered1|, |1and She1| bade him |1deprecant1| in. |1To her he was known. |aTo her of old time To her from old timea| unread was known.1| |1She blank1| and he precedent, |1stepped1| soft |1twice1| on the hall mat |1twice stepped1|. She asked his news which softly he |1told gave1|, hat holding in |1humble1| hand, |1to not molest loth to irk1|, in Horne's house. Much in nine years had come to pass. Once her in |1a |aDublin's Dublina|1| throng |1he had met met |ahada| he1| and |1when she bowed to her bowing1| had not |1quick1| doffed. Now pardon |1of her1| he craved, for |1unread good1| pleas |1she kindly gave allowed by her1| that that to him seen sudden face hers so young then |1had1| seemed. Light her eyes |1lit swiftkindled1|.

With veiled eyes |1looking1| low she said poor Doctor O'Hare was in heaven, she |1said told1|. |1Bloom was sorry Sorry was Bloom1| to hear that. In his hat high grave |1deep1| he |1sad |asadlya|1| looked mute. Nurse Callan sighed |1pitying ruing1| fate for one so good yet |1unwilling to question God's will God's will to question unwilling1|.

And |1as whiles1| they spake the door of the chamber |1on the upon their1| left |1was1| opened and there |1came forth |awas heard nigheda|1| a |1great mickle1| noise |1as him thought1| as of many that |1sat had assembled them1| at meat and |1were made1| merry to their |1much1| desport. And there came |1forth against the place as they stood1| a young scholar of medicine, hardy and noble, that men |1cleped clepen1|
{ms, 5}
Dixon |1junior |afor him thought that sir Malachi had come as said,a|1| and he knew |1Bloom Master sir Leopold1| for it was not long |1time gone1| sithen they had |1met them had ado each with other1| in the house of our |1mother lady1| of misericord where this scholar |1dwelled lay1|. And he said him that he should in with them for to make merry. |1But And |aBloom sir Leopolda| in hope to scape free, said him that he should go other where and for1| he was |1full of cautels and sutle deceits and would not a man of cautels and a subtile |aand the |bsister good nunb| was of |bthat mind his avis |cand repreved this scholarc|b| though she trowed |bnot wellb| he |bhadb| said not sooth but thing that was false of his subtility.a| and his blank would not1| |1And But1| he, this scholar, would not |1have him hear say nay nor do |aher mandement ne have him neithera| in aught1| contrarious to his list so |1he sir Leopold1| went with him into |1that this1| chamber for there many and he was |1nothing loth fain1| to rest |1him for a space|a, in sooth,a|1| being |1weary sore1| of limb after |1his so1| many marches |1environing1| and sometime venery.

In |1that this1| chamber sat at board a merry fellowship of |1scholars the most lustiest1| and they hailed |1Master Bloom sir Leopold1|, crying |1lustily amain1|, Welcome, |1sir pardee1|. With right goodly cheer was that board decked of |1salty well salted1| fishes |1withouten heads |aand oil of fatness of the olive and the lifegiving bread of fecund wheata|1| and bread and |1with a plenty of aleflasks aleflasks a great plenty1|. And |1they the scholars |aall the board abouta|1| with one accord they bade him |1to1| be of them and |1to1| and |1that this1| scholar let pour for him a draught of fellowship |1and |aaa| halp thereto |athe which |ballb| they drank every eacha|1| whereof |1he sir Leopold |ato pleasure hima|1| took |1but little |aonly apertly somewhat in |bfriendship fellowship |cfor he drank never no alec|b|a|1| but anon full part privily |1he1| voided it |1clean the more part1| into his neighbour glass |1|afor he drank never no alea|1|, he nothing of that will perceiving. |1So Thus1| sat |1he |aMaster Bloom sir Leopolda|1| with those |1merry drunken1| scholars. Loth to move |1in from1| Horne's house.

This meanwhile this good mercy nun stood by the door and |1bade begged1| them of their gentleness |1of |aby at the reverence ofa| Jesu |aour alther liege lorda|1| to leave their wassailing for there was one above, a gentle dame, whose time hied fast. I marvel, said sir Leopold, it be not come or now |1|afor that meseemsa| it dureth overlong in the coming1|. And |1|athere wasa| he was ware |aof & sawa|1| a |1scholar franklin1| |1that1| hight Lenehan that heard him on that side the board|1, one elder that was older1| than any of the tother and to him sir Leopold for that he known to sir Leopold of him |1by cause they were |afellowknights fellowsa| in the one emprise1|,.º But, said sir Leopold to him |1eke by cause he was elder1|, or it be long too she will bring forth by God his
{ms, 6}
grace and have joy for she |1is in marvellous pains hath waited marvellous long1|. And the |1squire franklin |athat had drunkena|1| said |1missing1|, Expecting each moment to be her next. Also he took the cup that stood afore him for him needed |1never1| none asking |1nor desiring him to drink1| and |1now drink, said he, and1| he |1drank quaffed1| as far as he might to their both's health for he was a passing good man of his lustiness. |1Now drink, said he and And1| sir that was the meekest knight that ever sat in hall, pledged him courtly in the cup. Woman's woe with wonder feeling.

Now let us speak of that fellowship that was there to the intent to be drunken, an they might. There |1were was a sort of scholars, that is to wit, Dixon, yclept junior, with other his fellows.1| Dixon, |1yclept junior, and1| Lynch and Madden, scholars of medicine, and the franklin |1that1| hight Lenehan and one from Alba |1Longa1|, |1one one1| Crotthers, and the young |1knight1| Stephen |1that had mien of a |afriar frerea|1| that was at head of the board and a jester Costello, than men clepen Punch Costello |1|afor things all along upon a masterya| of him gested1| (and of all them, |1young Stephen reserved reserved young Stephen1|, he was the most drunken) and that demanded |1ever still1| of more ale) and beside the meek sir Leopold but on |1sir young1| Malachi they waited for that he promised to have come and such as intended to no goodness said how he had broke his advow. And sir Leopold sat with them for he |1had bore |afasta|1| friendship to sir Simon and to this his son young Stephen |1and for that his languor led him there |awhere |bafter longest wanderingsb| insomuch asa| they feasted him for that time in the honourablest manner1|. Ruth led him, |1knight,1| |1love1| led on, with lust to wander, yet loth to go.

For they were |1right witty1| scholars. And he heard their |1arguments quarrels, each gen other, |aas touching birth and righteousness,a| young Madden1| maintaining that |1in put1| such case it were hard the wife to die (for it had so fallen out |1a matter of some years ago1| with a woman of Dublin in |1that Horne's1| house that now was trespassed out of this world) and the self night next before her death |1all1| they had taken counsel) and they said farther she should live because in the beginning they said the woman should bring forth in pain and travail and wherefore they said that were of this imagination said affirmed how young Madden had said truth for he had
{ms, 7}
conscience to let her die
. And |1some not few1|, and of these was Lynch, were in doubt that the world was |1now1| right evil governed as it was never other, howbeit the mean people thought |1meant believed it1| otherwise, but the law |1and nor1| his |1canons judges1| did provide no remedy. This was scant said but all cried with one voice the wife should live |1as well as other1| sith she was God's creature, and the babe to be die |1so little and little |awhat with argument and what for their drinking,a|1| they waxed hot |1upon that head |awhat with argument and what for their drinking,a|1| but the franklin Lenehan was promt to pour them ale so that at the least way mirth |1should might1| nothing fail. |1Then |aTo whom Thena|1| the young Madden showed all the whole affair and when they had heard that case how that she was dead and her goodman |1husband1| for |1holy1| religion |1sake1| would not let her death whereby they all were wondrous grieved. To whom the young Stephen had these words following: |1Sir Sirs1|, pity is well |1and murmur |ais ekea| oft |awith amonga| low folk1| but if pity be meet here |1for this born child1|, how then for them those unborn that we daily do to death. For |1sir sirs1|, he said, our lust is brief but nature, giving it, had other ends. Then said Dixon junior to him that hight Punch Costello wist he what ends. But he had overmuch drunken t and the best word he could have of him was he would ever dishonest a woman, whoso she were, |1upon occasion |awere shea| wife or maid or leman, on occasion if it so fortuned him to be delivered of his |alanguor lustihooda|1|. Whereat young Stephen |1presently1| poured him ale in his cup, saying it was well said if not well done. And Crotthers of Alba Longa sang praise of that beast the unicorn |1a licomo1| that the which as sir |1Binnetto Malachi |aafter |bsirb| Binnettoa|1| saith |1how1| once in a thousand years |1comes he cometh1| by his |1horns horn |abut he |btook them to witness pricked forward with their jestin jibes to himward wherewith they did malice himb| all & several would witnessa|, by saint Bastardry that for his privities he was able to do any manner of thing that lay in man to do.1| Thereat laughed they all |1jocundly1| only sir Stephen and sir Leopold |1that which1| never durst laugh too open for but |1some a strange1| humour |1which he would not bewray1|, but he had pity for her who bare, whoso she |1was were1|. Then spake young Stephen|1, orgulous,1| of |1holy mother1| church, of law and canons, of birth |1wrought1| by wind |1|aof seeds of brightnessa| and demons1| as divers fable. Also th he showed how in the third month of bigness of the mother a soul |1rational1| was made and how in all our
{ms, 8}
|1holy heavenly1| mother foldeth |1ever1| souls for God's glory |1what though the earthly mother die |ayet should she die, by canon yet should the earthly mother, bringing forth beastly, die, by canon whereas the earthly mother that was but a dam to bring forth beastly should die, by canon for so saith |bthe seal of he who |chath holdethc| the fisherman's seal, even he that |cblessedc| Peter on which rock was holy church against for all ages buildedb|a|1|. So all they bachelors |1then1| asked of sir Leopold |1and it he said as it was informed him what would he in like case so jeopard her person as risk life to save life1|. A wariness of mind he would answer as fitted all and said |1dissembling1| as it was informed him |1so and agreeing also with his experience |ain case of so seldomseen an accidenta| by |aPatrick rock saltpetrea|1| that it was good |1that holy church with for that mother church belike at1| one blow had birth and death pence. |1|aand in |band so in Inb|a| such sort deliverly he scaped their question and Dixon junior swore by the mass sir Leopold had said pregnant saying. That is truth, then said Dixon junior, and |aby the mass or I erra| as pregnant word.1| Which hearing young Stephen was a marvellous glad man and he |1swore averred1| that |1|athey hea| who stealeth from the poor lendeth to the Lord1| for he was |1ever1| of a wild humour when he had |1much unread1| drunken|1.

Now and1| that he was even |1now1| in that taking it appeared eftsoons.

But sir Leopold was passing grave, maugre his word, by cause he still had pity of |1shrillshrieking women the terrorcausing shrieking of shrill women1| that were |1with child brought to bed1| and he was minded of his good lady |1Marion1| that had borne him an only manchild which in his 11th day on live had died |1and no man of art could save so dark is destiny1| and she was wondrous stricken at heart for |1her babe so dead that evil hap1| and h to his burial, sore weeping, did him on a fair white corselet of lamb's wool, the flower of the flock, lest he might perish utterly and lie |1akale blank1| (for it was that time |1in about the1| midst of the winter): and now sir Leopold that had of his body no manchild for an heir looked upon him, his friend's son |1and was shut up in sorrow for his forepassed happiness1|, and as |1unread sad1| as he was that him failed a son of |1like parts and1| gentle courage |1for all accompted him of real parts1| so grieved also he in no less measure for young Stephen for that he lived riotously and murdered his goods with whores.

{Section III: MS V.A.11—V.A.12: U84 14.277-428}
{ms, 8}

About that present time young Stephen filled full all cups that stood empty of their portion |1so as there remained but little mo, if some of the prudenter had not shrouded their approaches from him that still plied it very busily1| and who, praying for the intentions of the sovereign pontiff, he gave them for a pledge the vicar of Christ |1that what also1|, as he judged, was with, by all signs and tokens, vicar of Bray. Now drink we of this chalice,
{ms, 9}
he said, and quaff ye this strong mead which is not |1indeed parcel of1| my body but the bodiment of my soul. And he showed them fully proudly coins of the tribute and goldsmiths' notes |1to the worth of three pounds, |afive tena| shillings,1| that he had for certain sweet songs he had writ that were printed. They all admired to see that riches and drank to his more health. |1And to them his words were these as followeth. For …1| For, he said, as the ruins of time build mansions in eternity so will the thorn tree, blasted by the winds of desire, become |1from a bramblebush1| to be the rose upon the rood of time. In the womb of a woman the word is made flesh but in the spirit of the maker all flesh that passes is made into the word that shall not pass away. Omnis caro ad te veniet. No question but her name is puissant, omnipotentia supplex, |1that is, |ato wit,a| |aas Bernardus saitha| an almightiness of petition,1| whom we call mother most venerable |1our mighty mother, she that aventried our Agenbuyer1|. But or she knew him and was but the creature of her creature, vergine madre, figlia di tuo figlio, or she knew him not and then stands she in the one denial or ignorance with Peter Piscator |1that |alaid carrieda| the house that Jack built,1| and Joseph the Joiner |1patron of |athe happy death of alla| unhappy marriages, parce que qui l'avait mise dans cette fichue position, c'était le pigéon sacré nom |ad'une d'una| pipe1|. Entweder transsubstantiality oder consubstantiality but in no case subsubstantiality. And all cried out as one man: Out upon |1subject it1| for a very |1varlet scurvy1| word. A pregnancy without joy, he said, a birth without pain, a body without blemish, a belly without bigness. Let the |1simple lewd1| with faith and |1ardour fervour1| and veneration worship with courage. |1Will we withsay & withstand.1|

Hereupon Punch Costello |1beating with his fist the board1| would sing |1Staboo Stabella1| a bawdy |1ballad catch |aof a |bmaid wench |cthat was putc|b| in pod of a soldier |bin Almainb|a|1| which |1he did now begin now begin he did1|

The first 3 months she was not well, Staboo
{ms, 10}

when nurse Quigley |1came blank1| to the door and bade them hist, ye should shame you, |1nor was it not meet as she remembered them,1| being her mind was to have all orderly against lord |1Horne Andrew1| came |1so that as she was jealous1| no turmoil might shorten the honour of her guard. |1It was an ancient and a sad matron.1| Nor did her |1word hortative1| want his effect |1and for straightways1| Punch Costello was of them all embraided and they reclaimed him with civil rudeness |1to countervail the same1| and with menace of blandishments |1|xothersx|1| |1|aA murrain sieze hima| What a devil he |aunread would be ata|1| to shut up his drunken drool out of that |1like a |agood blesseda| ape, |athe gooda| sir Leopold |aknowing that had |bthe flower of quiet for his cognisance for his cognisance the flower of quietb|, |bmargerain gentle,b| advisinga| the time's |ahaste occasiona|1|. In Horne's house rest should reign.

This passage was scarely by when |1Dixon junior Master Dixon1| asked of Stephen when he purposed to take |1orders the vows1| and he said obedience in the |1cradle womb1|, |1chastity and in the tomb but1| involuntary poverty all his days. Master Lenehan at this said he had heard of those nefarious designs and how |1as he heard counted,1| he had besmirched the lily virtue of a confiding female which was corruption for minors and, making merry, they asked if he were now a happy father. But he said he was the eternal son and |1a very virgin lecher the very virgin of lechers1|. Thereat they waxed merry and remembered him of his |1bridaltory bridal1| rite for the |1disrobing and1| deflowering of the spouse, she |1to be1| in white and saffron, in saffron and scarlet |1he her groom1|, with burning of nard tapers and much else till she was unmaided and |1made got1| to engender. And he gave them the an excellent |1hymen1| song out of the Maid's Tragedy by |1those delicate poets1| Master |1John1| Fletcher and Master |1Francis1| Beaumont that was writ for the twining of lovers: To bed, to bed was the burden |1that is played sweetly on the virginals1|. And well met they were, said |1Master1| Dixon, but|1, by my troth,1| better were they named Beau mount and Lecher for ofº
{ms, 11}
suchº a mingling much might come. And Master Stephen said indeed |1to his best remembrance1| they had |1but the1| one wench between them |1& she of the stews |ato make shift with in delights noble |bwhich was the custom of the countryb|a|1| for life ran very high in those days. And greater love than this, said he, no man hath that he lay down his wife for his friend. Go thou and do likewise for thus |1or words to that effect1| spake Zarathustra, |1sometime1| regius professor of French letters in the university of Oxtail on the Char nor breathed there ever that sage to whom mankind was more beholden. |1Orate pro me.1| Seek unto him, he said, and I will bring you |1into a unto the1| land |1of behest1|, he said, |1even from Horeb and from Pisgah and |afrom Sinai and froma| the horns of Hatten unto a land1| flowing with milk and money. |1|aFor Asa|, he said, the ends and finalities of all things accord in some mean and measure with their inception and their originals, the same |amanifolda| concordance which has led for the growth from birth accomplishing by retrogressive metamorphosis that lessening towards the final most consonant with its the nature of that which suffers, so is it with us from cradle to the grave. Over our birth the aged sisters bend: we wail, |aseek battena|, live, |afuck clasp & sundera|: above us dead they bend. Among the bulrushes |asaved from watera| of old Nile |aa ona| wattled bed: on Pisgah of Bajan the bed a jackal's cave. And as no-one knows what the ubicity of his |agrave tumulusa| nor to what |aineluctablea| processes we shall thereby be ushered so nor whether to Tophet or a land of promise in the like way is all hidden when we would backward see from what region of remoteness |aour thea| whatness |aof our whonessa| has fetched his whenceness.1| Thereto Master Costello cried |1to him1| lustily: Dedalus, song. And Master Stephen he, loudly, bade them lo |1wisdom had built herself a house1|.

Behold the mansion reared by dedal Jack
See the malt stored in many a |1fluent refluent1| sack
In the proud cirque of Ivan's bivouac.

And more would he have rehearsed but a noise |1without1| gave him sudden pause. |1Loud1| On left looming Thor thundered. |1The god in anger1| awful |1hammerwight a hammerhurler1|. And master Lynch bade young Stephen have a care to witwanton for the god was angered for his hellprate |1and paganry1|. And young Stephen |1that had erst challenged to be so doughty1| waxed pale |1and shrank together1| as he |1heard as tasted that storm and1| they could all mark and his heart shook within |1his the cage of his1| breast.

But was young braggart's fear vanquished by calmer's words? No, for he knew his own wretchedness which could not |1be done away with by words by words be done away with1|. And was he then neither calm like the one nor godly like the other? He was neither as much as he would have liked to be either. But could he not have endeavoured to have found again |1that |aas in his youtha| the1| natural piety that then he lived withal? No Indeed no for grace was not there to give it to him. |1Would Heard1| he then in that thunder a voice of the god |1Bring Forth1| or, what calmer said, a natural phenomenon? Heard? Why he could not forebear hearing both of those things unless peradventure he had |1him1| up |1his1| understanding (which he had not done). For understanding told him that he was in the kingdom of phenomenon where he must certainly one day die as he was too a phen a passing show like the rest.

Yes: pious had told him of that kingdom and chaste had pointed out to him the way thither but the reason was that |1on the way1| he fell in with a |1certain1| whore |1of an eyepleasing exterior1| whose name |1was, she said, is1| Bird in the Hand |1of an eyepleasing exterior1| and she beguiled him |1wrongways1| from the true way |1and told him he was a very pretty man1| and |1so1| had him in her grot which is named Two in the Bush or, by some learned men |1also1|, Carnal Concupiscence.

it about him (for he swore |1with several oaths1| he had been at pains about it) but on the persuasion of Stephen he gave over to search and |1sat by was bidden to sit near by which he did mighty brisk1|. He was a kind of sport gentleman that |1many took went1| for a merryandrew or honest pickle and what belonged of women, horseflesh or scandal in the town he knew it pat. To tell the truth he was mean in his fortunes and for the most part hankered about the stews |1|aand low taverns |bat nights till broad dayb|a| with crimps and ostlers |aand other gentlemen of the gamea| of whom he picked up loose gossip1| |1and. He took his ordinary at1| the boiling cook's but if he had |1gotten1| but a mess of broken victuals into him or a bare tester in his pocket in a company he could always bring himself off with his tongue, some pretty story he had from a punk or whatnot that every mother's son of them would burst their sides.

Another then put in his word: and they dressed him up, says he, in a shift and petticoat with a tippet round his neck and built a barn for him with a fine manger in it full of the best grass for by this time our bull was grown so he fat and heavy that he could scarce walk to pasture. To remedy which they brought him his good feed of fodder in their apronlaps, and, as soon as his belly was full, he used to rear up on his hind quarters to show them a mystery and |1bellow and roar roar and bellow1| to that extent they were struck with wonder. Ay, says a third, but worse than that he grew so pampered he would have nought in the land but green grass growing for himself and the |1native1| herd |1(for green was the only colour that was to his mind)1| and if ever he got scent of a husbandman that was sowing as much as a handful of mustard or a bag of rapeseed he'd run amok over half the countryside rooting up with his horns whatsoever was planted.

Our worthy |1friend acquaintance1| Mr Malachi Mulligan |1with a friend of his who had lately come to town, it being his intention to take the King's commission1| now appeared in the doorway just as the as student was concluding his apologue |1|aaccompanieda| with a friend of his |aa young gentleman,a| |aMr Seymour his name Mr Seymoura| who had lately come |aupa| to town, it being his intention to take a cornetcy |aand so to the warsa|1|. He relished it was kind enough to express |1his some1| relish of it and all the more as it jumped with a project of his own for the very evil which had been touched |1upon on1|. |1Whereupon Whereat |a(having before |bMr Mulligan now After this homily heb|a| removed from his hat a handkerchief with which he had sheltered it |afrom the rain, they. Theya| both had been surprised by the |awater rain |bit seems,b|a| and for all their mending their pace had been taken water as might be seen by large spots of moisture on mr Mr Mulligan's suit, a |alight hoddena| grey |aworsteda| which was now somewhat piebald1| he handed round to the company a set of |1pasteboard1| cards which he had had printed at Thom's on which |1were to be read in flowing italics these words was this legend printed in flowing italics1|: Malachi Mulligan, Fertiliser. His project, as he went on to expound, was to withdraw from the round of idle pleasures such as form the chief business of |1our men sir |afopp foplinga|1| |1about in1| town and to devote himself to the noblest task for which the bodily organism is destined. |1He had been led into this thought by a consideration of the causes of sterility |awhether caused by a volition inhibitions or volition caused both by inhibition and prohibitiona|, whether the inhibition in its turn was due to conjugal vexations or to motives of |aeconomy thrifta|, whether the prohibition proceeded from defects congenital or from |ablank propensitiesa| acquired. It grieved him, he said, sorely to see the nuptial couch |adeprived defraudeda| of its dearest pledges and to reflect upon so many |abeauteous maidens |bagreeableb| females |bwith rich jointuresb|a| who lose their bloom in cloisters when they might multiply the inlets to happiness, sacrificing the inestimable jewel of their sex when a hundred pretty fellows were at hand to caress had been to him a thorn in the flesh1| |1To this end To end this inconvenience |ahe had havinga| advised with certain good heads he concluded it to be due to a suppression of latent heat1| he had resolved to purchase the freehold of Lambay island from count Considine, a gentleman of note much in favour with
{ms, 20}
our high church party, are there to set up a national fertilising farm |1to be named the Ladies' Friend1| he offering his dutiful services to any female |1who should direct to him1|, no matter what her grade in life, who felt the need of fulfilling the function of her nature. |1This His1| project was very favourably entertained by his audience |1and1| Mr Mulligan |1drove home his contention for |ain suffrage of his contention |bin support of his intention while |che made court to while he drove home his point withc|b|a|1| the scholarly by an apt verse from the classics|1, which as it dwelt upon his memory was a |a conclusivea| confirmation of his contention, |aTalis ac tanta |bdepravatio seculi nostri pravatio hujus seculib|, O quirites, ut matronae |aromanae nostrae |blascivasb| semiviri cuiuslibeta| spadonis Libici titillationes |atesticules pregravibus erectioniunread sublimis testibus ponderosis |bet atqueb|a| erectionibus excelsisa| centurion. centurionum Romanorum |a|bproviterb|a| magnopere anteponunt.1| and for those of ruder wit by analogies of the animal kingdom |1more suitable to their relishes,1| the doe of the forest and her buck, |1the Stoat,1| the drake of the farmyard and |1her the1| duck.

Valuing himself not a little upon his elegance he now applied himself to his person with animadversions of some spleen upon the sudden shower while the company lavished their encomiums upon the project he had advanced. The young gentleman, his friend, bore him out and was full of a passage that had lately befallen him|1, and overjoyed as he was,1| which he could not forbear to tell his nearest neighbour. Mr Mulligan now, perceiving the table, asked for whom were the loaves and fishes and then, seeing Mr Bloom, he made him a civil bow and |1asked if he were said, Pray, Sir, were you1| in need of
{ms, 21}
any professional assistance |1that we can give1|? |1Mr Bloom Who, upon his offer,1| thanked him very heartily |1though preserving his proper distance,1| and made return that he was come there to about a |1lady blank of Horne's house1| that was in an interesting condition |1from woman's woe, poor body, |aand he here fetched a deep sigha|1| to know if her happiness had |1yet1| taken place. One of the company there |1rallied him upon his plan,1| asking Mr Mulligan |1would he give also a guarantee by asking, when was it known blank1| he smote himself |1at the middle below the diaphragm1|, saying |1with an admirable imitation of |amistress unread Mother Grogana| (|aan a mosta| excellent woman of her sex though 'tis pity she's a trollop |atooa|)1|, There's a belly that never bore a bastard. This was so happy a conceit that it renewed the storm of mirth and threw the whole room into the most violent agitations of delight. He had run on in the same vein but that his |1mimicry mimicking1| was arrested by a larum in the antechamber.

The young gentleman |1having treated himself and his next listener, who was none other than the Glasgow student, to some cordial waters1| had just reached the salient point of his narration was still narrating to his neighbour.

At this point the listener who was none other than the student from Aberdeen congratulated in the liveliest fashion with the young gentleman and, interrupting the narrative at a salient point, |1desiring desired1| his vis a vis |1|aby witha| a polite beck1| to be so kind as to |1have the obligingness to1| pass him a flagon of cordial waters, by a questioning poise of his head (a whole century of polite breeding had not achieved so nice a gesture!) to which was united an equivalent but contrary balance of the bottle asked him as plainly as was ever asked in words
{ms, 22}
if he might treat him with a cup of it. |1|aMais,a| Bien sûr,1| That you may, said the young gentleman, |1cheerily and1| very opportunely. There wanted nothing but this cup to crown my felicity. But was I left with |1a bare only a1| crust in my wallet and |1a draught some pure water1| from the well |1My God,1| I could |1not1| find it in my heart |1to blame kneel down upon the ground and thank heaven for1| my lot. With these words he took a complacent draught of the cordial, slicked his hair and popping his hand into his bosom drew forth a |1|apicturea|1| locket that hung from a silk ribbon, |1the very same that very1| picture which he had cherished ever since her fair hand had wrote on it upon it therein. Gazing upon the picture with a world of tenderness, Ah, sir, he said, |1to see her was to adore her Had you but seen her |athen |bat that moment |cthat evening by the dim lake at that affecting instant in such an artless disorder, |dof so melting an expression, believe me,d| you too, |dsir Monsieurd|, had been impelled either to deliver yourself into the hands of so fair an enemy or to quit the fieldc|b|a|1| |1I declare,1| I was never so touched in all my life. How happy will that man be |1to whom she will concede the last |ato whom she will bless with her whom that tender creature will bless with hera|1| favours! A sigh of affection gave eloquence to his words and, |1replacing having replaced1| the locket, he wiped his eyes and sighed again. |1Just powers above, Beneficent distributor of blessings to all |asublunary thya| creatures,1| how great |1& universal1| must be that sweetest of |1thy1| tyrannies which holds |1subject in thrall1| the |1poet unlettered swain of the glebe1| and the |1polished1| coxcomb |1of the road1|, the free and the bond, the reckless youth |1in the heyday of passion1| and the citizen of maturer years! Yet how mingled and imperfect are all our human joys. Would to God, he cried, that prudence had but |1whispered reminded1| me to take my cloak along. Then had neither we though it rained four showers we were neither of us a penny the worse. But, beshrew me, cried he, clapping hand to his brow, tomorrow's

discourse which has had set out promised for the enrichment of our |1store of1| knowledge.

While all were taken up with vacant hilarity |1of all1| the bell rung and, the good Miss Callan, while all were |1speculating conjecturing1| as to the cause, came in and, having spoken |1a few words1| to the young |1Doctor Surgeon1| Mr Dixon, retired with a low bow to the company. The presence for the moment among a party of debauchees of a woman endued with every quality of modesty and not less severe than beautiful refrained even the humour of the most ribald but her departure was the signal for an outbreak. Strike me silly, Dixon, said Mr Costello, I believe she has rendezvoused you. What, you dog? |1'Tis because he has the bedside manner, You succeed with them? Immensely so,1| said Mr Lynch. A bedside manner it is that they use in the Mater.

Toº revert to Mr Bloom who, after his first coming into the room had been conscious of some impudent mocks from them, but but had borne with them, as the product of |1overheated imagination an age |aupon which it is commonly chargeda| that |acommonlya| has more money than forecast1| the word of Mr Costello was a strange language to him for in truth he nauseated the man that seemed to him a misshapen creature got in some uncouth way & |1prematurely1| born untim |1before his time1|. They were full of extravagancies|1, like overgrown children1| it was true and |1their words words of their tumultuary discussions were difficulty understood1| were not often nice: their testiness and outrageous fire were such that his nature resiled from: nor were they scrupulously tender of the proprieties though their fund of |1strong1| animal spirits spoke in their behalf |1as such as put him in thought of1| that that |1desiderated missing1| link in the chain of beings desiderated by the late ingenious Doctor Darwin. It was now more than the middle span of our existence that he had passed through the thousand vicissitudes of life and being,º of a wary stock and self a man of rare forecast, he had enjoined himself to repress all motions of rising choler and, by intercepting them with the readiest precaution, foster within himself that |1mood of patience fullness of sufferance1| which base minds jest at, the hasty scorn and |1all1| find tolerable and but tolerable. To those who create themselves wits at the cost of feminine delicacy to them he would concede neither to bear the name nor to inherit the spirit of good breeding: and it had revolted him and for such as having lost all forbearance |1have no more to lose can lose no more1| there remained the sharp antidote of |1rebuke experience to cause their insolency to beat a retreat1|. Not but what he could feel with mettlesome youth which is ever for eating |1the tribute1| of the fruit of the tree forbid it |1caring nought for the megrims of |adotards the severea| and the |ainspirations gruntlingsa| of |adotardsa|1| yet no so far forth as to forget humanity upon any condition soever towards a gentlewoman when she was about her lawful occasions.

Toº conclude while, from the sister's words, when questioned, he had reckoned upon a speedy delivery he was, however, it must be owned, not a little alleviated by the intelligence that the |1event issue1|, so auspicated after a trial of such duress, now testified once more to the mercy as much as to the bounty of the Supreme Being. |1Accordingly he broke his mind to his neighbour saying that1| To express my notion of the thing, |1said he to his neighbour,1| |1my his1| opinion (who ought not perhaps to express one) is that one must needs have a cold constitution and a cold genius not to be rejoiced by this freshest news |1of the conclusion fruition of her confinement1| since she had been in such pain through no fault of hers. The elegant young spark said it was the husband's fault |1that put her in pod1|, or |1at least1| it ought to be |1unless she be another Ephesian matron1|. I must acquaint you, said Mr Crotthers, |1clapping a hand on the table so as to produce a resonant comment of hilariousness1| |1he holy |aJoseph Joea|1| was here today, a short meagre man with Dundreary whiskers preferring a request to |1see have news of1| Wilhelmina, his life, for so he calls her. I bade him hold himself in readiness for the event for that it would burst anon. Though somewhat stricken in years for my part I |1admire cannot but extol the virile potency of one1| the old bucko |1that who1| could |1still1| knock another child out of her. All then fell to praising of it, each in his way though the same young spark held with his former opinion that another was the man in the gap. Singular, muttered Mr Bloom to himself, the wonderfully unequal |1temper faculty1| of their time modification possessed by them, |1that the puerperal chamber and the dissecting theatre should be the seminary of such unseemly mirth and1| that the mere acquisition of academic honours should suffice to transform |1in a pinch of time1| these votaries of levity into the exemplary practitioners of that art which most men anywise eminent esteem the noblest. But, her he further added, perhaps it is but done to relieve their pentup feelings of awe for I have more than once observed that birds of a feather laugh together.

With what fitness, let it be asked, has this alien |1whom the concession of a gracious prince has admitted to civic rights, of a tenancy at will1| arrog constituted himself |1a the1| lord paramount of |1morals our politics1|? |1Where is now that gratitude which every loyal impulse should have inspired.

Asº a matter of fact this |1surmise of Buck M's which was due to a misconception of the most stupid description |ahim being in a sort of trancea|1| was |1preposterous &1| not the case at all. The individual, whose visual organs were now commencing to show signs of life, was as astute or astuter than any living man and anybody who conjectured the contrary would have discovered themselves |1pretty quickly1| mistaken |1pretty quickly1|. For the last two minutes |1or so1| he had been staring at the bottle which was in front of him as it happened on the table blank
and which happened to be in front of him |1|xSome beer, bottled by Bass and Co at Burton on Trentx|1| and was |1certainly1| calculated to attract |1the anyone's1| eye |1no matter whom,1| on account of its scarlet colour. He was |1thinking about some simply recollecting |a2 or 3a|1| private transactions of his own of which the |1other1| two |1mutual friends1| were |1mutually1| as innocent as the babe unborn. Eventually, however, |1both their eyes met &1| he perceiving that the other was |1trying endeavouring1| to help himself to the beer he involuntarily decided to help him himself and accordingly |1he1| grasped the mediumsized recipient |1which contained the desire required |abeer refreshmenta|1| and made a capacious hole in it by pouring a lot of it |1out1| with a considerable degree of attentiveness not to upset any of it about the place.

The debate which ensued was, in its scope and progress, an epitome of life. The debaters were the keenest in the land. The theme they were engaged on was the loftiest for debate. The common hall of Horne's house had never beheld an assembly so representative
{ms, 3}
andº so varied. nor had the old walls of that establishment ever heard a language so encyclopaedic. Crotthers, from in the striking highland garb, |1his face glowing with the briny airs of Caledonia,1| sat beside facing Lynch, whose countenance bore already the signs of premature vice and preternatural cynicism. Below these at the foot of the board and on either side of it the figure of Bannon in his traveller's kit contrasted finely with the primrose elegance and easy manners of Malachi Roland St John Mulligan. The chair of the resident himself stood vacant before the hearth but |1beside it on either side1||1. Next the Scotchman1| was the place assigned to Costello, the eccentric vagrant who while |1opposite to beside1| him in stolid silence sat the the squat |1form person1| of Madden of Thurles.

Itº had better be said here that the point of view transcendentalism to which Mr Stephen Dedalus' contentions would appear to prove him |1incurably1| addicted runs counter to |1accepted1| scientific methods. Science, it cannot be too often |1said repeated1|, deals with phenomena. The man of science has to face hard facts and explain them as best he can. There are, it is true, some questions which science cannot answer — at present — like the |1two first1| problems submitted by Mr Bloom as to why one is born male or female the problem played by sex in birth. Must we accept the opinion of |1Hippocrates Empedocles of Trinacria1| that the right ovary is responsible for the males or are the too long neglected spermatozoa the differentiating factors or is it |1as the more advanced embryologists Lusk, Leopold, Herschel, Valenti, opine,1| a mixture of both. The second problem raised by the same gentleman is even more vital: infant mortality. |1It is interesting because, as he very pertinently remarks in this connection, we are all born in the same way but we all die in different ways.1| Dr Mulligan blames the hygienic conditions in which our greylunged citizens contract adenoids, pulmonary complaints, etcetera |1from by1| inhaling germs that lurk in dust. Dr Crotthers attributes it to neglect whether private or official. Although the former is undoubtedly true the case he mentions of a nurses forgetting to remove the sponges from the peritoneal cavity is. An ingenious explanation is offered by Mr Lynch that both natality & mortality like all other phenomena tidal movements, lunar phases, |1blood temperature, diseases in general,1| everything, in fact, in nature's vast world from the birth extinction of

Nature, we may be sure, has her own good reasons for what she does & in all probability these deaths are due to some law of anticipation by which organisms in which morbous germs have taken up their residence (science has now proved conclusively that only the plasmic substance can be said to be immortal) tend to disappear at an increasingly early stage of development, thereby securing a survival of the fittest. Mr Dedalus' remark that an omnivorous being which can masticate, deglute, digest and apparently pass in the ordinary fashion aliments |1such so various1| as cancrenous females of middle age, pottlebellied solicitors blank might find a gastric relief in |1a an innocent1| meal of staggering bob reveals in a very unsavoury light the tendency alluded to above. For the enlightenment of those who perhaps are not so intimately acquainted with the secrets of the |1civic1| abattoir as this morbidminded esthete seems
{ms, 6}
toº be it should perhaps be stated that staggering bob, in the vile jargon of our licensed victuallers, signifies the flesh of a dayold calf newdropped from its mother. In a recent controversy with Mr Bloom he is reported |1to have as having1| stated that once a woman has let the cat into the bag she must let it out again |1and or1| give it life |1(as he phrased it)1| to save her own. At the risk of her own was the |1crushing1| reply rejoinder, none the less effective for the moderate tone in which it was delivered.

Look at her as she reclines there in the first bloom of her new motherhood, breathing a quiet prayer of thanksgiving to the One above, the Universal Husband. And, as her loving eyes behold her babe, she wishes only one blessing more, that her to have her Fonsy there with her to share her joy, to lay in his arms the fruit of their lawful embraces.
