The above represents a well-known passage from a literary masterpiece, in which:
a. All punctuation marks were erased.
b. Capitalized words and words over 8 letters were replaced by a dollar sign.
c. The first and last letters of all words over two letters were erased.
d. The rest (i.e. one and two-letter words and the spacing) was left unchanged.

Example: condition d would look as follows:
d h es i e n n w ette ord n h pacin a ef nchange

Some Thoughts re: Solution with comment | Comment 7 of 9 |
(In reply to Solution with comment by Dej Mar)

Dej Mar, 

I thank you for your comment, especially for the 1st part of it - it should be "Proper" instead of "Capitalized" to exclude the first words of a sentence.

There is still a serious doubt whether changing an upper-case letter
into a lower-case one prior to erasing it makes any sense.

I have left    one "I" within an all-lower-case text - so the puzzle is consistent, without abiding to your 2nd part.

BTW, your solution (Was it solved before or after the hints??) cannot claim to be errorless: "..Included in this copy of the passage ARE( not "is") the speakers of the lines:"...

Last, but not the least:   Why don't you rate this (or other)puzzle(s)?

The rating is a meaningful input for the author.
