Pagina 29 - So live, that when thy summons comes to join "The innumerable caravan that mo<ves To that mysterious realm 'where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon ; but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave Like one who 'wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.
Pagina 65 - Resolved, That as a further mark of respect to the memory of the deceased the Senate do now adjourn.
