Lettering

Plura de amore quàm de lectione verba se ingerebant; plura erant oscula quàm sententiæ. Sæpius ad sinus quàm ad libros reducebantur manus; crebriùs oculus amor in se reflectebat, quàm lectio in scripturam dirigebat; -verbera quandòque dabat amor, non furor. J.M. Moreau le Je. del l'An 2e. N. Le Mire, sculp, l'An 3e.
