In regard to the posting:

"Jack Keroauc & Jack Karlos' unpublished papers"

I see in this article a reference to Jack Kerouac's The Scripture of the Golden Eternity ([sic] 1953). It is my understanding that this sutra was composed in 1956, perhaps in Mill Valley, California--but certainly published by Totem Press in association with Corinth Books (1960) for the first print/edition. Other editions and printings have since been published. Nowhere have I found a 1953 reference.

The real question is: where is the original manuscript of this work? I know it was written in pencil, revised often, and not in Kerouac's noted manner, best illustrated in the book, On The Road.
