    Private Collection, U.K.

    London, Anthony d'Offay, David Jones Inscriptions, 24 October-22 November 1980 (ex-cat.)

    Literature
    Nicolete Gray, The Painted Inscriptions of David Jones, Gordon Fraser, London, 1981, p.95, list of minor inscriptions, cat.no.viii

    Nicolete Gray writes that this is part of a group of inscriptions which are 'rather mysterious'; the text is one the Artist liked, and he would often paint it on to photographs and letters sent at Epiphany, but it does not seem to have been used for any major inscription (ibid., p.95).
