Eliot's note for line 68

A phenomenon which I have often noticed.

Commentator's note

Don't expect any useful information from this. Eliot was probably just showing us some of his and playing a joke at the same time.

Actually there may be something behind this note. Please consider whether Eliot may have included this note as a hint to an autobiographical basis to the poem.
