As he appears in the text:

“On Ezra Pound’s recommendation, Ford Madox Ford hired a young Ernest Hemingway as an editor of the transatlantic review, but Ernest grew quickly jealous of Ford’s career and the beautiful, talented women who surrounded him. “The thing to do with Ford is kill him,” Ernest complained to Ezra. ‘This ain’t personal. It’s literary.’ Ford, for his part, continued his vocal support of Ernest and his polarizing work.”
