I tried inserting the above Graphics[ instruction (using a text editor) 
into the notebook, but get the message that 'Graphics' is not an 
appropriate command or primitive.  That's what I mean when I said 
originally "I couldn't find a way of doing that that the graphic box 
would accept."

Alexei Boulbitch's suggestion may be the best solution.

Thanks for the comment.
