In poetry:

And nae great sight to see;
But 'cause I'm rich, these plaguy men
Will never let me be.
"I’m Tibby Fowler O’ The Glen" by Susanna Blamire
For ever blessed be the Lord,
Who broke the fowler's cursed snare,
Who saved us from the murd'ring sword,
And made our lives and souls his care.

I know it, friend, she’s light as air,
False as the fowler’s artful snare,
Inconstant as the passing wind,
As winter’s dreary frost unkind.

No snare, no fowler, pestilence or pain;
No night drops down upon the troubled breast,
When heaven's aftersmile earth's tear-drops gain,
And mother finds her home and heav'nly rest.
"Mother’s Evening Prayer" by Mary Baker Eddy
As a bird from the mesh of the fowler freed
With wild wing shatters the air,
From shelter to shelter, betray'd, she flees,
Or lured to some treacherous lair,
And the vulture-cry of the enemy nigh,
And the heavens dark with despair!
"Crossing Solway" by Francis Turner Palgrave
- We may be blind to men, sir: we embrace
A future now beyond the fowler's nets.
Though few, we hold a promise for the race
That was not at our rising: you are free
To win brave mates; you lose but marionnettes.
He who's for us, for him are we.

We study these algebras by constructing from E a product system X (E ) of Hilbert bimodules, and applying recent results of Fowler about the Toeplitz algebras of such systems.
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
This theorem is apparently beyond the reach of Fowler’s theory, and our proof requires a detailed analysis of the expectation onto the diagonal in T C ∗ (E ).
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
Fowler’s [5, Theorem 7.2] gives a spatial condition under which a Nica-covariant Toeplitz representation of a compactly aligned product system X of Hilbert bimodules is faithful on Tcov (X ).
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
Since T C ∗(E ) has essentially the same representation theory as Tcov (X (E )), Fowler’s theorem describes some faithful representations of T C ∗ (E ).
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
We can now apply Fowler’s theorem to X (E ) (Proposition 7.6), and deduce that the Fock representation of T C ∗(E ) is faithful (Corollary 7.7).
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
It does not appear to follow from Fowler’s results: its proof requires a detailed analysis of the expectation onto the diagonal in T C ∗(E ) and its spatial implementation, as well as an application of Corollary 7.7.
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
Fowler proves that there is a C ∗ -algebra TX generated by a universal Toeplitz representation iX, and a quotient OX generated by a universal Cuntz-Pimsner covariant representation jX [5, §2].
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
In this section, we show that when X = X (E ), Fowler’s Nica-covariance condition reduces to an extra relation for Toeplitz E -families, which will look familiar to anyone who has studied any generalisation of Cuntz-Krieger algebras.
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
Fowler shows in [5, Proposition 4.1] that there is an action αψ : P → End ψe (A)′ such that p (T )ψp (x) = ψp (x)T for T ∈ ψe (A)′ and αψ p (1)h = 0 for h ∈ ψp (Xp )⊥ .
Product systems of graphs and the Toeplitz algebras of higher-rank graphs
We now see what Fowler’s theory tells us about faithful representations.
