I turned toward Mr. Gatsby, but he was no longer there
The largest of the banners and the largest of the lawns belonged
to Daisy Fay’s house” +
She was dressed in white, and had a white littler roadster
They were so engrossed in each other that she didn’t see me
until I was just ve feet away

Wild rumours were circulating about her…how her mother had
found her one night packing her bags to go to New York and say
goodbye to a soldier who was going oversees
The next autumn she was gay again, gay as ever
In June she married Tom Buchanan from Chicago, with more
pomp and circumstance than Louisville ever knew before
The day before the wedding have her a string of pearls valued at
three hundred and fty thousand dollars
Half an hour before the bridal shower, found her on her bed-
drunk as a monkey 
She wouldn’t let go of the letter…
The girl who was with him got into the papers too because she
broke her arm- she was one of the chambermaids in the Santa
Barbara Hotel

It’s a great advantage not to drink in a group of hard-drinking
people 
Perhaps Daisy never went in for amour at all-and yet there’s
something in that voice of hers
He came alive to me, delivered from that womb of his
purposeless splendour /
Something worried me
Suddenly I wasn’t thinking about Daisy anymore…but this clean,
hard, limited person, who dealt in universal scepticism, and who
leaned back jauntily within the circle of my arm
And Daisy ought to have something in her life,” murmured
Jordan
I saw that it was Gatsby’s house, lit from tower to cellar 0

I realize now that under dierent circumstances that
conversation might have been one of the crises of my life
The 8owers were unnecessary, for at two o’clock a greenhouse
arrived from Gatsby’s, with innumerable receptacles to contain
it 2
“Nobody’s coming to tea, it’s too late...I can’t wait around all
day” 
The exhilarating ripple of her voice was a wild tonic in the rain
Gatsby, pale as death…was standing in a puddle of water glaring
tragically into my eyes
