In Part: "George Platen could not conceal the longing in his voice. It was too much to suppress. He said, 'Tomorrow's the first of May. Olympics!"...Gorge's face was thin and had grown a trifle thinner in the nearly year and a half that he had bee at the House. His figure was slight but the look in his blue eyes was as intense as it had ever been, and right now there was a trapped look in the way his fingers curled against the bedspread...George said, 'The ships are coming in for recruits. By June, thousands and thousands will leave with millions of men and women heading for any world you can name, and all that means nothing?...It was only that he wanted not to be so alone in his anger. He wanted not to be the only one so filled with resentment, not to be the only one dying a slow death...." In fine condition, with a paper clip impression at the top of both pages.
