    TLF: "Lux Feininger ("Theodore Lux") at his easel. 1933 in Paris in Theodore's [Spicer Simson] studio which I leased from him. The address was 3, rue Campagne Première. Through the legs of the easel is seen the big 4-string guitar built to my specifications by Mr. V. Harlan in 1929." [203]

    TLF: "In this period I also received, into the small bedroom my brother had vacated, the fugitive Tokayer, an old pal of Bauhaus Band times, when he had been the last blower of the saxophone." [205]
