From Count Andreas Petofi: Exceeding the Grasp, an autobiographical gift of letters, lore, and lyrics.  Volume XXII

As you now know, my Pan-like obsession with Dr. Hoffman drove me to utter distraction from my work.  (I must confess that it still does, all apologies to Aristede, whose judgement remained bruised for some time, however he was too busy with all matters Judah Zachary to weigh in.) Unable to admit passion’s industry, even to myself, my desire to venture into the future was all the more exacerbated.  Was it to escape her temptations or was it to familiarize myself with her time to make myself a more admirable suitor?  That question is best resolved by historians, composers, poets, and lovers of love.
