Your most noble nature's shining instance, your mind's most vital loftiness, your fully formed humanity's kindness, illustrious Lord Heinz, have summoned, compelled, and driven me to reveal to you, as a personal monument of that respect with which I embrace you, one child from among the principle children of my genius, conceived and formed a long time ago. It's main theme is the composition of images, signs, and ideas, for the purpose of mastering universal invention, arrangement, and memory.
