Inscribed on paper, surrounded by a colourful floral pattern: "Surgery, after // all, is an affair // of the spirit: it // is a fierce test of a man's // technical skill, some- // times, but, in a grim or // long fight, it is above // all a trial of the spirit: // and there are few // things that can not be // conquered if a man's // heart is set on victory." A horizontal design follows the text, followed by "MOYNIHAN"
