"Still there's destiny in it, falling in love. Have their own secrets between them. Chaps that would go to the dogs if some woman didn't take them in hand. Then little chits of girls, height of a shilling in coppers, with little hubbies." (U13.973)
"As God made them He matched them. Sometimes children turn out well enough. Twice nought makes one." (U13.976)
"Or old rich chap of seventy and blushing bride. Marry in May and repent in December. This wet is very unpleasant. Stuck. Well the foreskin is not back. Better detach.
"Other hand a sixfooter with a wifey up to his watchpocket." (U13.982)
"Long and the short of it. Big he and little she." (U13.982)
"Very strange about my watch. Wristwatches are always going wrong. Wonder is there any magnetic influence between the person because that was about the time he. Yes, I suppose, at once." (U13.983)
"Cat's away the mice will play. I remember looking in Pill lane. Also that now is magnetism. Back of everything magnetism. Earth for instance pulling this and being pulled. That causes movement. And time? Well that's the time the movement takes. Then if one thing stopped the whole ghesabo would stop bit by bit. Because it's all arranged." (U13.986)
"Magnetic needle tells you what's going on in the sun, the stars. Little piece of steel iron. When you hold out the fork. Come. Come. Tip. Woman and man that is. Fork and steel. Molly, he. Dress up and look and suggest and let you see and see more and defy you if you're a man to see that and, like a sneeze coming, legs, look, look and if you have any guts in you. Tips. Have to let fly." (U13.990)
"Wonder how is she feeling in that region. Shame all put on before third person." (U13.997)
"More put out about a hole in her stocking." (U13.998)
"Molly, her underjaw stuck out, head back, about the farmer in the ridingboots and spurs at the horse show." (U13.998)
Bloom is referring to the Dublin Horse Show, a yearly equestrian event sponsored by the Royal Dublin Society (RDS). This PC shows J. Doyle's Moyglass, Celebrated Prize Winner of the Dublin Horse Show in 1904.
The first Dublin Horse Show was organized in 1864 by the Royal Agricultural Society of Ireland, under the auspices of the RDS; it had 366 entries with a total prize fund of £520. It was mainly a show of led-horses, with some 'leaping' demonstrations. Ass and mule classes were listed! In 1868 the RDS itself organized the show, on the Lawns of Leinster House. In 1869 'horse leaping' came to prominence. In 1870 the event was renamed 'The National Horse Show'. In 1881 the site was moved from Leinster Lawn to Ballsbridge. This PC (photo by Lafayette) shows 'Judging' at the DHS of 1904.
This later PC, printed by Hely's, shows Hunters Parading in Jumping Enclosure at the RDS Show. Since started in 1864, the Show has been held annually except 1914 - 1919 (WW1) and 1940 - 1946 (WW2). Now called The Fáilte Ireland Dublin Horse Show, it remains Ireland's largest equestrian event, and a major summer social event. In 2004, over 1,400 horses and ponies competed in 127 categories; some £500,000 and 52 cups and trophies were awarded to the winners.
"And when the painters were in Lombard street west. Fine voice that fellow had. How Giuglini began." (U13.1000)
"Smell that I did, like flowers. It was too. Violets. Came from the turpentine probably in the paint. Make their own use of everything. Same time doing it scraped her slipper on the floor so they wouldn't hear. But lots of them can't kick the beam, I think. Keep that thing up for hours. Kind of a general all round over me and half down my back." (U13.1001)
"Wait. Hm. Hm. Yes. That's her perfume. Why she waved her hand. I leave you this to think of me when I'm far away on the pillow. What is it? Heliotrope? No, Hyacinth? Hm. Roses, I think. She'd like scent of that kind. Sweet and cheap: soon sour. Why Molly likes opoponax. Suits her," (U13.1007)
