SELLEM Ladies, both fair and gracious, gentlemen: Be al I welcome to this miracle of, this most widely heralded of, this, I am sure you follow me, "nec plus ultra" of auctions. Truly there is a divine balance in nature. A thousand lose that a thousand may gain. And you, who are the fortunate, are not so only in yourselves, but also in being nature's missionaries. You are her instruments for the restoration of that order we al I so worship. And it is granted to, ah, so few of us, to serve.
Let us proceed at once. Lots one and two: al I objects in the categories animal, vegetable, and mineral.
