Fweet lists 31 occurrences of the mishe/tauf motif ("chishe" is unexplained)
"mishe" = I am (God, from burning bush)
"tauf" = thou art (Jesus to Peter)
'thou art Peter' seems to be the most-cited New Testament quote in FW, symbolising passing-the-torch, reenacted in various ways by missionaries
"The flame of Christianity kindled by S. Patrick on Holy Saturday in defiance of royal orders
Mishe = I am (Irish) i.e. [I am] Christian
Tauf = baptise (German)
Thou art Peter and upon this rock etc (a pun in the original Aramaic)
Lat[in]: Tu es Petrus et super hane petram" JAJ to HSW

"Sosie = double; Miss Vanhomrigh and Miss Johnson had the same christian name" JAJ to HSW
In Moliere's play Amphitryon, "Sosie was portrayed by Molière himself in the comedy's first production. The term 'sosie' in French now means look-alike, a reflection of the events in the play where the character Sosie is a doppelgänger of the God Mercury."
it's unlikely that "wroth" refers to Samuel Roth of Two Worlds, who at this point had paid Joyce $200 to reprint the early FW vignettes, and hadn't begun pirating Ulysses
