Σελίδα 209 - They read it, commented on it in my hearing, and I had the exquisite pleasure of finding it met with their approbation, and that, in their different guesses at the author, none were named but men of some character among us for learning and ingenuity.
Σελίδα 212 - ... woman and her child that came down the river in the boat with us, and were waiting to go farther. Thus...
Σελίδα 291 - Nothing is here for tears, nothing to wail Or knock the breast, no weakness, no contempt. Dispraise or blame, nothing but well and fair. And what may quiet us in a death so noble.
