and will yield a full and satisfactory
explanation of things in general -
The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.

Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
