Σελίδα 198 - And by his side a naked swerd hanging : And up he rideth to the highe bord. In all the halle ne was ther spoke a word, For mervaille of this knight ; him to behold Ful besily they waiten yong and old.
Σελίδα 330 - Amen, the foure and twentieth day of Aprill in the yeare of our Lord God one thousand six hundred...
Σελίδα 372 - One of the articles always stipulated for and granted, was the privilege of immediately celebrating certain games of long standing ; -viz. a foot-ball match and a cock-fight. Captains, as they were called, were then chosen to manage and preside over these games : one from that part of the parish which lay to the westward of the school ; the other from the east.

Σελίδα 372 - After three days' siege, terms of capitulation were proposed by the master, and accepted by the boys. These terms were summed up in an old formula of Latin Leonine verses, stipulating what hours and times should for the year ensuing be allotted to study, and what to relaxation and play.

Why doth the violet spring Unseen by human eye ? Why do the radiant seasons bring Sweet thoughts that quickly fly ? Why do our fond hearts cling To things that die ? We toil — through pain and wrong; We fight — and fly; We love; we lose; and then, ere long.
Σελίδα 357 - Signed, Sealed, Published and Declared by the above Named Testator William H. Sinkler as and for his last Will and Testament in the presence of us, who at his request and in his presence and in the presence of each Other, have Subscribed Our Names as Witnesses hereto.
Σελίδα 358 - IN WITNESS whereof I have hereunto sett my hand and Seal this fifteenth day of April in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and fforty ffive.
Σελίδα 372 - Till within the last twenty or thirty years, it had been a custom, time out of mind, for the Scholars of the Free-School of Bromfield, about the beginning of Lent, or in the more expressive phraseology of the country, at Fasting's Even, to bar out the master; ie, to depose and exclude him from his school, and keep him out for three days.
Σελίδα 372 - Master, meanwhile, made various efforts, both by force and stratagem, to regain his lost authority. If he succeeded, heavy tasks were imposed, and the business of the School was resumed and submitted to ; but it more commonly happened that he was repulsed and defeated. After three days' siege, terms of capitulation were proposed by the Master and accepted by the Boys.
