The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from The White Moll by Frank L. Packard:

and the gang had not found out the location of that hoard; but they had found out where Perlmer kept his spurious papers - stuffed in at the back of the bottom drawer of his desk in his office, practically forgotten, practically useless to Perlmer any more, for, having once shown them to Viner, there was no occasion to call them into service again unless Viner showed signs of getting a little out of hand and it became necessary to apply the screws once more.
