My typewriter arrived

It’s an eBay find, of course: a 1922 Underwood Portable. I’ve wanted one of these for a couple of years; I tried to buy one earlier this year and got ripped off, but this time the goods arrived as described, and I am charmed.

It needs a bit of cleaning; the “figure” key sticks, and the space bar doesn’t always work. Still, it’s exactly what I was looking for, and I intend to fix it up and take good care of it.

    only the attempt brings wisdom
    without practice our thoughts remain hollow.
    how many times is enough?
