Part 2 - Ideas for a boy’s novel from 1955—earth conquered by aliens titled “The Day of the Rats”, page 1462 is a strange one page part of a letter or narrative with a lot of RAH-isms in it that may or may not have been written by RAH talking about a young man having sex with is mother and the nature of whoring and honest work, page 1463 is a story idea suggested by Ginny about orphaned kids on a colony planet, 1464 is a RAH handwritten story idea called “The Hunter Hunted” about an alien invasion, 1525-1552, is manuscript titled “In One Line By Heinlein” compiled by Bob Bowers of good one-line bits from RAH’s works) Pages are an absolute hodgepodge of research articles, clippings, an occasional letter or story note.
