"Advice to the people in general, with regard to their health" by Samuel Auguste David Tissot
And, with a face as cerecloth white,
And tears like those that by the bier
Of loved one lost make dim the sight,
She poured her sorrows in mine ear.

Make manifest the red
Of thy most sacred head!
Break thou the covering cerecloths; rise up from the dead.
