Schott's Miscellany 17 September 2009

Wall Street resumed trading after the 9/11 attacks (2001)


The DIAMOND was an antidote to Satanic temptation.
RUBY made the possessor brave.
TOPAZ preserved the bearer against being poisoned.

EMERALD promoted piety.
SARDONYX dispelled unholy thoughts.

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as a dog does.</i>
Christopher Morley (1890-1976)
