Pierpoint Morgan in Egypt

Pierpoint Morgan in Egypt. Twas “the gorgeous barbaric beauty of the church in the early days” that led the barron robber to peruse Coptic Egypt's antiquity.

WRITE IT DOWN IN THE BOOK SAID HABBUK





HB. 1-2-3; 2/22-4 (142)
How long, o lord? I cry
for help
but you do not listen!
I cry out to you “Violence!”
    but you do not intervene.
Why do you let me see ruin
Why must I look at
misery?
Destruction and violence
are before me;
There is strife and
clamorous discord.

Then the lord answered
& said:
   Write down the vision
Clearly upon the tablets
so that one can read it readily.
For the vision still has
Its time
presses on to fulfillment
& will not disappoint
If it delays, wait for it
it will surely come
it will not be late
the rash man has no
Integrity but the just man
because he has faith – shall live.

Found in book on Calumet St in 2014,
Boston, Mass. USA
This seems to be a scribe's recreation of
portion 
of book of Habbuk.It appears on the
back side of Reserve Room Book routing slip

From the vaults - Walking up the Mission Hill

Walking up the Mission Hill
Past the summer porches
During the 4th quarter
Each TV tuned to the Game 4
Cheers coming out loud
I know we are coming back
See Tall Preston and ask the score
The Celts just moved two points ahead.
           -Jack Vaughan, Jun 2008
To read the rest of the story.
