Pagina 261 - Good,' which I think was written by your father. It had been so little regarded by a former possessor, that several leaves of it were torn out ; but the remainder gave me such a turn of thinking, as to have an influence on my conduct through life ; for I have always set a greater value on the character of a doer of good than any other kind of reputation ; and if I have been, as you seem to think, a useful citizen, the public owes the advantage of it to that book.

Pagina 471 - Bache, to hold to them for and during their natural lives, and the life of the longest liver of them. And from and after the decease of the survivor of them...
Pagina 388 - President, the small progress we have made after four or five weeks' close attendance and continual reasonings with each other — our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ayes — is, methinks, a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the human understanding.

Pagina 96 - I have received the letter, which you did me the honor to write to me the 4th instant, as also those which accompanied it.
Pagina 324 - I CANNOT quit the coasts of Europe without taking leave of my ever dear Friend Mr. Hartley. We were long fellow labourers in the best of all works, the work of peace.
