A companion piece of poetry, and equally fine in its whole conception. The muse has her tablet in hand, inscribed "Egypt," "Rome," "Greece." The crown and broken sword at her feet, and the crumbling pillar at her side, tell the story of her record. [P. 56; see entry 02410066 for companion piece. Engraving on p. 56 is signed "M. Orr--Co. N.Y." and depicts a standing female figure holding a tablet.]
