Σελίδα 67 - ... eagles to the pillars of Hercules, there also we have injuries to avenge ! Soldiers ! you have surpassed the renown of modern armies, but have you yet equalled the glory of those Romans who, in one and the same campaign, were victorious upon the Rhine and the Euphrates, in Illyria and upon the Tagus!
Σελίδα 48 - Maravalles : a bloody massacre ensued : many hundreds were made prisoners: the troops swept the streets from end to end, released their comrades, and, to all appearance, tranquillity was restored ere nightfall. During the night, however, the peasantry flocked in armed from the neighbouring country ; and, being met at the gates by the irritated soldiery, not a few more were killed, wounded, and made prisoners.
