DEDICATING A PENCIL SKETCH
"For Victor Authorius" -- "When, some time ago, I made you a present of this simple and entirely worthless small pencil sketch the feeling "never left me that I should write a few humble words of apology on the back of it, because the picture itself is of so little value and artistry...
"... Finally I gave it to you, for you loved it... That is my reward, a content sentiment beyond further quest."

Dedicating sketch
The great detective mystery" PC 10-30-33
"It was the most beautiful morning in early June. Peace beauty and unspeakably serene light reigned everywhere, the whole world was one happy bright smile. At 1/2 past 10 AM there was nothing to disturb this meteorologic and international friendliness. At 1/4 to 11 nothing in particular indicated that history was preparing a fantastic blow. Even 5 minutes to 11 people continued to hustle joyfully along stopping here and there for laughter..."

(The beginning of a Penny Cent novel about the coming Socialistic Utopia? We can only speculate.)

The drawing beneath the text "Mr. Cornelius Abrahams Flombutton's Palace converted  into a Worker's Club after the Revolution"  
No obvious explanation for these sketches, but apparently done in conjunction with the above "Great Detective Mystery" sketch. Perhaps the preliminary design for "public housing" for the fictitious future utopia.
