2 As to me, I seemed to see Kurtz for the first time.
3 I interrupted him by saying I had heard of Mr. Kurtz on the coast.
4 I was then rather excited at the prospect of meeting Kurtz very soon.
5 I had plenty of time for meditation, and now and then I would give some thought to Kurtz.
6 I would not have gone so far as to fight for Kurtz, but I went for him near enough to a lie.
7 Towards the evening of the second day we judged ourselves about eight miles from Kurtz's station.
8 There were rumors that a very important station was in jeopardy, and its chief, Mr. Kurtz, was ill.
9 It was just two months from the day we left the creek when we came to the bank below Kurtz's station.
