Epigraph

Illustration with caption from the author and epigraph:
 
Deep sunk in thought see Edward stand,
Revolving in his mind,
Which of the articles in his hand
He shall most useful find.
Like as the Sunflower spreads its leaves,
To meet the sun's bright rays,
The youthful mind with warmth receives
 

The Moral -- Truth conveys.
