  1. Long Text on yellowed paper in a typewriter appears to be a dialogue between two people, as it alternates between red and black text. Some of the dialogue is out of the view. The visible text reads, "I won't answer." " . . . ans no. Where are you?" "I am home." " . . . miss me?" At this point, the response is obscured by the typewriter. The text continues, " . . . you miss the most?" "No answer. I do."
