what did it matter if I proved my point, my pinpoint of a proposition, that Gothic was more a rite than an architecture? I repeated to myself time and again, after some kind friend had called, asking me with encouraging interest if all was going well, the famous Thomine words, "Reginald, I cannot, for such things have been shown me that all that I have written seems but chaff," chopped hay which will nourish no one, and which a draft will scatter.
So I have come to the third choice and my final conclusion. I am availing myself of the leave given me to try and convey what I experienced. I realized, when I began this memorandum narrative, that I could hope for no reception from any scholar. Even had my antiquarian orthodoxy been unblemished, this statement must have blasted it forever. Yet knowledge is not for those who accept in its name the right to be pensioned off from life and actual contemporary experience. Outside the ranks of scholarship there may be those who, because they are human, have to face sometime what I saw and, because they have minds vital enough to sustain them exposed to the experiences of a changing world, they may be prepared to entertain new knowledge. If so, for them I make this effort, this exposure. But now, when I have written this account, I see it conveys nothing; it, too, is "but chaff."
So, because I have decided to make this attempt, because I have not succeeded, because I was told, when permission to attempt it was given, that there is one more possible resource which can be employed and that I have not yet used, now I am about to summon that aid. It is, as I was told, sounding in the depths of my mind like a phrase ready to be

If it comes through, then I am sure the written words will convey, if not that, at least the way whereby those who would read openheartedly may come to the Presence. If the wire will not carry the current, then, willingly, the vehicle will be flashed back to the source of power.

I draw in my breath. I feel the answer rising-I remember.
