From The Rev Martyn Hughes

Sir: These lines from Ptolemy (2nd century AD) came to light as I heard of the successful Jupiter drop:

Mortal though I be, yea ephemeral, if but a moment

I gaze up to the night's starry

domain of heaven,

Then no longer on earth I stand; I touch the Creator,

and my lively spirit drinketh


Yours faithfully,

Martyn Hughes
