Content : Printed on border: "Friends! Come here and lift to me! / Something strange I would relate; / Should it prove of use to thee, / That will me well compensate. / Though so strong the lion be, / Though so full of majesty." "Little chips kindle a large fire." "Little brooks make great rivers." "Little enemies and little wounds / are not to be despised." "Culex fodit oculum Leonis."
