[956] later used for no. 963. At the head of pi HC explains that "There
is no meter in this exercise, the measures are only to divide the
examples."
 C These pages provide much the clearest rationale for HC's piano tech-
nique so far discovered, at least in this early period.
957 [Exercise in contrary motion nominally for piano]
[No tempo mark]
 D 1916-21?
 M Pencil draft complete in 8m, written upside down on bottom of
verso of no. 344
958 [Period for piano]
[No tempo mark]
 D 1919-22? Purely a guess; the handwriting suggests the immediate post-
war years.
 M Pencil draft of a complete period of 13m, plus D.C.
959 [String quartet opening fragment]
[No tempo mark]
 D [1920-23?] "Never used; 1920s?" was HC's comment via SRC's note
in 1963.
 M Pencil draft on 4 staves: first 22m of a movement, laid out on part
of 1 side of half a sheet of large score paper reminiscent of HC's
younger days
960 Paragraph for Flute, Viola, and Tuba
[No tempo mark]
 D "Dedicated to Carl Ruggles and for His Favorite Instruments." HC's
"paragraphing period" (see no. 390, C) was 1924-25. This trio may
have been written for Ruggles's 48th or 49th birthdays (11 Mar 1924
or 1925), or it may represent an act of gratitude and friendship
associated with no special occasion.

sity; machine copy at LC. Title simply Paragraph.
(b) Pencil draft, roughly sketched, complete in only 8m on Ip, at
Music Library, Yale University
