Latin Inscription by M. Von Baldhoveen,
under the Portrait of E. J. W.

If to the life sweet Weston be not here,1
Forgive : —no painter might thee task
achieve.
2
The speech—grace, love, persuasion ever
near
3
Who of the speech the portrait might
achieve ?
4
The heart—in genius rich and godly fear5
Who of the heart the portrait might
achieve ?
6
All filled with God, the spirit shining clear,7
No image could retain, no art achieve.8
