: Printed on border: "It wins my admiration to view the structure of this little work, a bird's nest. Mark it well, within, without-- No tool had he that wrought, no knife to cut, no nail to fix, no bodkin to insert, no glue to join; his little beak was all-- And yet how neatly finished! What nice hand with every implement and means of art, and twenty years' apprenticeship to boot, could make me such another."
