Pagina 128 - The rector and inhabitants of the city of New- York, in communion of the Church of England, as by law established...
Pagina 206 - A pleasing land of drowsy-head it was, Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye ; And of gay castles in the clouds that pass, For ever flushing round a summer sky...
Pagina 123 - There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men ; A thousand hearts beat happily ; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again, And all went merry as a marriage bell...
Pagina 298 - One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe : and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.

Too dull for laughter, for reply too mad : On one so poor you cannot take the law ; On one so old your sword you scorn to draw ; Uncag'd then let the harmless monster rage, Secure in dulness, madness, want, and age.
