Annotation

Brief allegory. A beautiful Temple sits in a desolate waste but is surrounded by gardens in which the children of Arts, Sciences, Peace, Plenty, and Pleasure play. As a sign of welcome to people from all countries, the Temple includes all architectural styles. The walls are from a single crystal from the mountain of Promise and the foundations had come from the sand-pit of Expectation and the quarry of Enterprise.
