    During the Enlightenment one OBJECTIVE of the INTELLIGENTSIA was to DILIGENTLY assemble in a salon. Often a clock with a PENDULUM would strike in an ADJACENT room. One attendee wore a PENDANT, a LEGACY from her dear grand-mama. A poet with ILLEGIBLE writing titled his letters at a PERPENDICULAR angle. A music room was an APPENDAGE of the main salon.
