(recto) epigraph: [“Such is the patriot’s boast where’er we roam, / His first best country ever is at home.–– / And yet, perhaps, if countries we compare, / And estimate the blessings which they share, / Though patriots flatter, still shall wisdom find / An equal portion dealt to all mankind; / As different good by art or nature given / To different nations makes their blessings even.” Goldsmith.]; from Olver Goldsmith, The Traveller, or A Prospect of Society (1764), ll. 73-80.
