If it matched the carbon typescript, we have to assume that Faulkner made the punctuation changes himself, in ink, before submitting it or instructed Wasson or some other editor to make the changes. I can discover no pattern in the carbon typescript's punctuation of the Benjy section that would justify retaining the three different methods in the new edition; that is, there are no punctuation distinctions between black and white speech, for example, or between past and present time. Clearly, then, we have to accept the regularized punctuation of the published book's Benjy section as more nearly representing Faulkner's intention than the carbon typescript does.
