the poetry of a fragmented biography...

archives girard college

he daily stretches forth his invisible hands...

i have made my way alone, with means gained from my nurse, the sea...

at this period commences the first continuous record which is to be found among the large mass of books and papers...

grass literally grew in the street, and nothing disturbed the silence...

it was during this period that he built the splendid fleet of vessels which he principally named after distinguished french philosophers...

i shall not murmur...

i am wrapped up in a labyrinth...

fragments and sentences from the 1879 book "girard college and its founder" (image, another view of the archives).
