    I'm pretty sure it's one of those "first letter of such and so words" codes. So somewhere on that page, the first letter of 8 words in order makes up that word.

      "That answers many yearnings remembered in sorrow." (pg. 387)

        Quite cool. I love reading the Whalestoe Letters because of the first-letter-of-every-word code. That's so much fun to read, and it makes me think when I can skip over the words and just read the letters naturally. It goes away if I think about it, but it's still cool. Encoding things is neat. I guess that must be a common view here on this site.

          Thamyris

          Thamyris

          An ancient Thracian bard, who in his presumption challenged the
          Muses to a trial of skill, and being overcome in the contest was
          deprived by them of his sight. Milton alludes to him with other
          blind bards, when speaking of his own blindness (Paradise Lost,
          Book III.35).

            Ah yes, but the real question is of course What pleasure would a picture give to sightless Thamyris?
