Suppose it were Friday lxxiii: keeping faith with the city

    The first of two sidings of
    the Southern Pacific railway
    in Palo Alto stops at the en-
    try to its founder's ranch.
    The Leland Stanford Junior
    University keeps a spur where
    Friday comes with repatriat-
    ing clockwork and delivering

    Of course the persistence
    of a race of happy people
    is no accident merely of
    nature. It replenishes it-
    self with endlessly pro-
    liferating discovery.
