60 The long declaration by Bright is in such ungrammatical Latin that a perfect translation is impossible. So far as the statement can be rendered in English, it says: And I, Edmund Bright, citizen and writer of the court letter of the City of London, having been received as one man into the number of esteemed and wise men of the said most illustrious craft or science of this City of London, which craft now and for many generations past in this City has been so deserving of honour for many and various reasons, and very necessary reasons at that, since, because of the manifold uses to be created, which lie hidden and very delicately concealed in this most splendid science, it was always not unjustly considered one of the most illustrious [crafts]—may it be permitted [to me], as one initiated, to follow [it] with my clumsy skill—and was considered so for this reason, chiefly because, being first and foremost [among] its equals, it understood the rudiments and, as it were, the foundations of other crafts and, moreover, the origin of those matters which touch upon human intellect, in its very essence, and reality itself; which gift the great God and Creator of things has caused to be so instilled in human minds that we rightly judge it to be called the most excellent of all other outstanding [crafts] as it spreads abroad and descends from the same Father to his creatures. As far as I can, and inasmuch as I am able to follow it up with my meagre talent imparted to me by this same Creator, I make witness and admit that I am in no way qualified either to represent with the tongue, play on the pipe, or follow up in my thoughts the sacred mystery, lying hidden as if in the most secret places, with the many and varied rites and customs, precepts and institutions included —and very beneficially so—in this science, with which it comes about that one may reach the exalted peak of this same science; nor is it permitted to celebrate such things with deserved eulogies however much one's spontaneous and self-inspired freewill agrees to adorn it, [but] one should hope for the future, at length, and humbly beseech even the great Creator that He will be an aid and a help to this science so that it may flourish for evermore with His assistance and compassion. Let us earnestly implore with one mind that God will grant this through His goodness.
