Quotation

The Airs of the Heads in my Holy Family of Rafaëlle are perfectly fine, according to the several Characters ; that of the Blessed Mother of God has all the Sweetness, and Goodness that could possibly appear in her self ; what is particularly remarkable is that the Christ, and the S. John are both Boys, but the latter is apparently Humane, the other, as it ought to be, Divine.
