Messrs Codex and Podex, and under his own benefiction of their3
pastor Father Flammeus Falconer, boycotted him of all mutton-4
suet candles and romeruled stationery for any purpose, he winged5
away on a wildgoup's chase across the kathartic ocean and made6
synthetic ink and sensitive paper for his own end out of his wit's7
waste. You ask, in Sam Hill, how? Let manner and matter of this8

blushfed porporates that an Anglican ordinal, not reading his10
own rude dunsky tunga, may ever behold the brand of scarlet11
on the brow of her of Babylon and feel not the pink one in his12

demum ex stercore turpi cum divi Orionis iucunditate mixto, cocto,24
frigorique exposito, encaustum sibi fecit indelibile (faked O'Ryan's,25
the indelible ink).26
    Then, pious Eneas, conformant to thc fulminant firman which 27
enjoins on the tremylose terrian that, when the call comes, he28
