The writings from which I quote, included as Appendix I, comprise approximately 80 percent of the sheets I found. The remaining pages, which contain material that is more or less repetitive, have been omitted. In translating Stella's text I have not always indicated missing passages or words, omitted usually because of illegibility but sometimes because the missing words and phrases are only elaborations or modifications of ideas and images already expressed. I have tried to suggest the long flowing line of the artist's Italian style, and the flavor of his speech as it is recollected today by those who knew him.
