= DRAFT of the poem included in Koren-bloemen (The Hague, 1658, IX. Boeck. Snel-dicht, no.8, p.623). With 3 corrections: in line 6 (the word following "Deze is van 'tsoetst" illegibly crossed out and changed into "verdiep"), in line 7 ("wijst" crossed out and changed into "rolt") and in line 8 ("als" crossed out and changed into "voor"). The heading variant "Aen Joffw. Tesselschade Visscher, drijvende een' schoone dochter van Mr. Pieter van Veen, in sijn leven uytnemend schilder, tot het geestelick leven" as in J.A. WORP (ed.), De gedichten van Constantijn Huygens, vol. II, p.252 (Gron., 1893), but with one (illegible) word later added between "leven" and "uytnemend". The "schoone dochter van Mr. Pieter van Veen" alludes to Apollonia van Veen, to whom Vondel and Barlaeus have also dedicated pieces of poetry. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXII.
