This lovely item was a reward for aimless wandering in the library of the Pontifical Insitute of Mediaeval Studies in Toronto. Fruits of indolence, having taken in too much of the Corpus Christianorum, Series Latina or my beloved dusty volumes of the Patrologia Latina. I can't imagine who would use it as a bookmark. Furthermore, I wonder who had it.
This day saw the promulgation of, among other things, Nostra aetate. Forty years hence, the Council formally closed on Immaculate Conception 1965.

My dear friend,
I would like to inform you that everything contained in library books belongs to the library; even if it is an abandoned "book mark." Did Fr. Farge or Caroline say you could keep it?

My Dear Library Page,

Why stick merely to things found in books, whoever left em there? Why not declare that anything at all brought into the library shall from that time on 'belong' to the librarians? I'm sure you can devise even more profitable Rules, if you try.

Your obedient servant,
