Thanks to Mike C for the ad!

The latin translates "if the day had been completed" from from his writings in Dialogus de oratoribus.

The first word "Leitmotiv" is German for "Theme". The quote is attributed to the Roman Senator Tacitus from his work, "Dialogus de Oratoribus" or "Dialogue of the Ambassadors/Orators". The quote itself means "If the day were done." It is found in section 42.1 of the book the whole thing states "Finierat Maternus, cum Messalla: 'erant quibus contra dicerem, erant de quibus plura dici uellem, nisi iam dies esset exactus." Which rougly means "Maternus had just finished when Messala said: 'On the contrary, they are those who I would say that you were about to say I would choose to be, if the day were done." Maternus could refer to Julius Firmicus Maternus a senator and astrologer. I can find no record of a Messalla in that time period. The next word videte means see or sight. Breitenfeld is an area of Lipzig Germany, haven't found anything related to the previous message except for the recurrence of the German. Neither can I find any mention of G.A. in any rela tion but The next three names relate. Martin Luther, Thomas Cromwell, and John Calvin were all influential in the Protestant Reformation. That's all I have.

third line says :calmly; refer: may of 1989 #3. may 1989: 3) The place: (sheet music) This is most obviously a meeting, And if you'd like to go I advise you to decode that sheet music! I hear they make you rich if you can figure it out. Furthermore there is a time here, hopefully it has not already passed. last line loosely translates into widefield.

"nisi iam dies esset exactus" --Tacitus is from a book called, "Dialogvs de Oratoribvs." http://books.google.com/books?id=-EfWAAAAMAAJ&dq=iam+dies+esset+exactus&source=gbs_navlinks_s

Comments: Leitmotiv: a German term for a 'leading motif' which is often used to describe musical phrase that consistently denotes a certain character, setting or mood (a leitmotif). Usually the leitmotiv denotes something important in a work of art. "nisi iam dies esset exactus": This translates roughly to "if the day were not almost spent" and appears in the closing section of Tacitus' Dialogus de oratoribus; a textbook on rhetoric. It is an unsatisfactory ending to an intellectual conversation. "Videte": This means to see, or to consult. It seems likely that it's an imperative to consult the advert from May of 1989. Number three in the advert from May of 1989 reads ""It is the nature of obsession that all things, second-best is the most detested.": "Amor fa molt, argent fa tot." (41.23°N.,2.11°E); " n: This is mathematical notation for "intersection". It can mean the set with members that are members of both of two other sets. …: is an ellipsis. In classical rhetoric (as known by Tacitus) it can be used in aposiopesis which is an oratory device intended to allow the imagine to fill in the details. Breitenfeld: This is village near Leipzig in Germany. BB: There are two "Battle of Breitenfeld"s but neither occur on a date that could be represented by 5/69. Both battles were part of the 30 Year War which was fought between Protestant States and Catholic States. In some sense it was 'won' by the Protestant States. G.A.: I'm sure what this means. Perhaps "God Almighty". !: As a mathematical symbol this mean to multiply an integer by all the preceding natural numbers. Can also mean the negation. Luther: Major protestant founder +: It's pretty obvious that this is a mathematical symbol but I'm unsure which interpretation this could be. In Set Theory it can be the Disjoint Union of two sets. Cromwell: A Puritan which was a denomination of Protestantism which included Calvinists. #: In Set Theory the hash symbol gives cardinality. Calvin: Another major Protestant founder. *: Another mathematical symbol. Could be multiplication, could be Cartesian Pairs in Set Theory. N.B. The boarder to the advert is odd. With dots at the centre of the top, bottom and left edges.

The name Peggy Dow. Peggy is short for Margaret. Dow, as in Dow Jones? Margaret Jones is an anagram for Sergeant-Major. Far fetched, I know...

The croquet-hoop and three dots suggests mathematical intersection with three dots; can this be related to the three dots in the frame around the text? Exclamation also is (math notation) a sign for uniqueness; the names on the right then are associated with integers, 1,4,8,5 (and note most asterisk characters are six-pointed, Calvin's asterisk has five points instead).

Taken from Tacitus' Dialogus de oratoribus,a dialogue on the nature rhetoric. This line is from the very end. The last few lines in their entirety: "Finierat Maternus, cum Messalla: 'erant quibus contra dicerem, erant de quibus plura dici vellem, nisi iam dies esset exactus.' 'fiet' inquit Maternus 'postea arbitratu tuo, et si qua tibi obscura in hoc meo sermone visa sunt, de iis rursus conferemus.' ac simul adsurgens et Aprum complexus 'ego' inquit 'te poetis, Messalla autem antiquariis criminabimur.' 'at ego vos rhetoribus et scholasticis' inquit. Cum adrisissent, discessimus." Which roughly translates to (text in ad in all caps): Maternus had finished, when Messalla said "there would have been many things against which I would have spoke, and many things about which I would have wished to have been said, IF THE DAY HAD NOT ALREADY BEEN FINISHED." Maternus said "let there be later discussion according to your judgment, and if there is anything that seems obscure to you in my speech, let us confer about them again." And rising at the same time and embracing Aper he said "I will accuse you before the poets, and Messalla will accuse you before the ancients. He (Aper) said "And I will accuse you before the rhetoricians and the scholars." After they had laughed, we departed

The quote translates as "if the day were drive" According to wikipedia, the battle of breitenfeld "ensured that the German states would not be forcibly reconverted to Roman Catholicism. It confirmed Sweden’s Gustavus Adolphus of the House of Vasa as a great tactical leader and induced many Protestant German states to ally with Sweden against the German Catholic League" 5/69 might be Masy of 1969, which could refer to the 13 May incident, described as "Sino-Malay sectarian violence in Kuala Lumpur (then part of the state of Selangor), Malaysia, in which many Malaysians died. Officially the number of deaths was played down, but Western diplomatic sources put the toll at close to 600, with most of the victims Chinese." Then again, if the 5/89#3 is a reference to an earlier ad, the 5/69 might also be

Meeting in the same place as may '89's #3 TITLED "The Place"

The bottom line, left side is referencing May 1969 - do you have a micro of that paper?

(Webmaster's note: some of the mathematical symbols here are garbled due to copy/paste of special chars. Will try and fix this later) (intersection) is a mathematical symbol. A (intersection) B means the set that contains all those elements that A and B have in common. Goldrei, Derek (1996), Classic Set Theory, London: Chapman and Hall, p. 4
