Postscript on John Leyden

I know a lot of Leyden of late...leydenmania.

Only remains to say that his grave - he died after rushing into a pestilential library basement of oriental manuscripts unable to resist them and wait for the room to be aired - is in Java and  "remains home to a colony of fireflies".
