This chapter explains the varied writings of sound forms articulated in time series. The text provides narratives of the Reverend Hope Atherton and Steven Williams in George Sheldon's A History of Deerfield, Massachusetts, published in 1895 by the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association. It is summarized that the Lethean tributaries of lost sentiments and found philosophies had a life-giving effect on the process of the author's writing. The author is overjoyed and feels harmony while experiencing the fragmentary knowledge and the continual progress toward perfect understanding of the sound forms. The font-voices summon a reader into visible earshot and struggles of conscience are taken up as if they are going to be destroyed by previous states of fancy and imagination.
