For I prophecy that men will learn the use of their knees.
For every thing that can be done in that posture (upon the knees) is better so done than otherwise.
For I prophecy that they will understand the blessing and virtue of the rain.
For rain is exceedingly good for the human body.
For in my nature I quested for beauty, but God, God hath sent me to sea for pearls.
For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God, duly and daily serving him.
For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way.
For this is done by wreathing his body seven times round with his elegant quickness…
For when his day’s work is done his business more properly begins.
For he keeps the Lord’s watch in the night against adversary.
For he counteracts the powers of darkness by his electrical skin & glaring eyes.
