Catalogue Note

Original 41pp. typescript, with manuscript corrections, SIGNED AND TITLED BY HENRY MILLER on the folder. Never published in this format, "Mara-Marignan Marinated" was completely rewritten for publication in 1956, and appeared as the second part of the novella Quiet Days in Clichy. The envelope present with this collection is addressed to Emil Schnellock, Miller's childhood friend and chief mentor. The manuscripts for both the story and the novella went missing in the 1940s, with Miller noting: “The scripts (two) were lost for over ten years...Turned up miraculously—where I won’t say now—and I rewrote."
