  [begin leaf 1 recto] 9 Sleepchaser's. I am a hell‑name and a Curse: The [illegible] Black Lucifer was not dead; Or if he was, I am his sorrowful, terrible heir: I am Apollyon, I am the God of Revolt—deathless sorrowful vast scorner of those him ^whoever who rules ^oppresses me, I will either destroy them him or they he shall release me. Damn him! how he does defile me! He hHopplesr ^of his own sons; he breedser of children and sells tradesr them He treats politicians ^sSellsing his daughters and the breast that ha fed his young [illegible], and ^so buys a nomination to ^great office; He iInformedr against my brother and sister and got tookaking pay for their blood, hearts; blood, He He lLlaughed when I looked ^from my iron necklace, after the steamboat that 
  carried away my woman.—
