is a learned members-only club
dedicated to the study of right Feeling and audacious Thinking,
& to keeping a noble Recorde for our Time of
the Lost Causes and Forsaken Loyalties of Historie.
It bequeaths to its members a wondrous education in
what culture was like before the professors crushed it,
and serves as a most noble guide to keeping one conversant with all
that is beautiful and sublime in the intellectual and moral world.
