*The riddle and its answer are given here in the original, as proof to those who understand them, of what may perhaps appear so extraordinary as to require proof, especially as the book is exceedingly rare.

Quien es el que fue nascido
              Dos vezes, y condenado
              Innocente sin peccado,
Y per dineros vendido;
Despojaronle primero
             Sus vestidos y colores,
Y estava como cordero
Levantado en el madero
             Por nosotros peccadores?

 


*José Corrêa da Sena—well known in London by the name of the Abbé Corrêa.

 

 


*Literally Auditor
