                       (         illustrious and     very
reverend      ) 
                      permit         me to see
and suffer 
                             but also      desire



                              By which

voyage
I wished to go; 

                    therefore          by night
               a torch          of burning wood

                                                 a
thick cord of reeds
                well soaked in         water

                                   two lights

                     the studding sail


                an answering signal
