This chapter discusses the notion that the best tractates had been dedicated to individuals who were no better than them. Others, for different reasons, seemed disposed to owe the author little or no thanks to acknowledge that he dedicated it to them. The chapter starts with a dedicatory epistle to the Most Reverend Signor Don Sapatino. The chapter relates how the author found a tattered manuscript he had used as a wrapper for other writings. The author presented the manuscript to Sapatino for interpretation. According to the author, Sapatino was more than capable of comprehending the whole, for he existed outside of the whole; he was able to penetrate the whole because there was nothing that can restrict him; he was able to possess the whole, because he possessed nothing.

Keywords:   best tractates, dedicatory epistle, Don Sapatino, tattered manuscript, the whole
