“Lipton’s.” Antaeus, no. 61 (autumn), 259-65. Twenty entries from a private journal prefaced with this statement: “The Journal from which these excerpts are taken went on for close to one hundred thousand words. I would usually write in it on Mondays and Tuesdays after a heavy pot week-end—marijuana was referred to by the not very opaque alias of Lipton’s. Begun on December 1, 1954, the Journal has entries until March 4, 1955.” More information about the journal’s origins can be found in the Fourth Advertisement in Advertisements for Myself [59.13] (Putnam’s, New York, 1959).” Rpt: 17 December 1954 entry in Self, May 1990, 192.
