the metropolitical temple // hierogrammaton



This spring was much more remarkable than at present, gushing out of the earth, in a continued stream. They say it was spoil’d by digging for a fox who earth’d above, in some cranny thereabouts; this disturb’d the sacred nymphs, in a political way of speaking.

I took notice that apium grows plentifully about the spring-head of the Kennet.

’Tis a large square intrench’d, 110 druid cubits by 130.
