"I Have Invented Nothing"

A page from the second journal of The Painted Girl.
Text reads:
"I have invented nothing."
The [person] I am writing about is not famous. It may be that
[they] never will be. It may be that when [their] life at last comes
to an end [they] will leave no more trace of [their] sojourn on earth than
a stone thrown into a river leaves on the surface of the water. Then [this journal], if it is read at all, will be read only for what intrinsic interest it may possess. But it may be that long after his death perhaps, it may be realized that there lived in this age a very remarkable creature.
  — W. Somerset Maugham
         ”The Razor’s Edge”

(Precise meaning of ephemera found in page is unknown. METRA card and Guest Check, which reads, printed in ink by unknown handwriting, “Our deeds still travel with us from afar, and what we have been makes us what we are.” — George Eliot)
