Happy Birthday Henry


The Sage of Baltimore, memorialized at Enoch Pratt as H.I. instead of H.L. on this tiny placard outside his collection. If I'm not mistaken the volumes form his personal library, once housed in his home on Washington Square (now closed by the City Life Museums), are now inside.

"Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

Gotta go celebrate.
