“ Obversatur oculis ille vir, quo neminem ætas nostra graviorem, sanctiorem, subtilio.
rem denique tulit : quein ego quum ex admiratione diligere crepissem, quod evenire con

tra solet, magis admiratus sum, postquam penitus inspexi. Inspexi enim penitus : nibid
* a me ille secretum, non joculare, non serium, non triste, non lætum.”
