MOBY-DICK, Page 110

Title: Men may seem detestable as joint stock-companies and nations; knaves, fools, and murderers there may be; men may have mean and meagre faces; but man, in the ideal, is so noble and so sparkling, such a grand and glowing creature, that over any ignominious blemish in him all his fellows should run to throw their costliest robes.

  1. Found paper from the church where the wedding (in Richmond, Virginia) took place. What is fascinating is that someone else had already been doodling on this paper before I took it back to the hotel room. You can see, in the lower left portion, how they have written "...von" below the "A" in "Parish." There are a few more but they have been covered by my own ink. A strange kind of coincidence, and one I didn't notice until I had started working on this piece.
