This page and the next were written to be the end of Chapter 3. I felt they worked better as a lead-in to Chapter 4 and so I reassigned them, which is why Chapter 3 has only twelve pages instead of fourteen. (At the time I tried to make fourteen pages the standard chapter size. This didn’t ever come to pass.) The order of events never changed, just the spot where the chapters were separated.
