These pages correspond with the period Brautigan was writing "Willard and His Bowling Trophies." Brautigan's first notation is on June 21st and the last is on September 26th. We strongly suspect that these pages represent the entire period during which Brautigan wrote the book because for the very last entry Brautian wrote "8 pages / Finished." (The upper case "F" suggests that Brautigan is referring to having finished the book because in other instances where Brautigan notes that he finished a certain number of pages he used a lower case "f".) Interestingly, Brautigan also occasionally notes how many pages he was "ahead" or "behind" indicating that he clearly had a goal in mind that he was trying to accomplish. A terrific personal artifact documenting Brautigan's day-to-day work as a writer. Near fine.
