第 270 頁 - And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and of the martyrs of Jesus : and when I saw her, I wondered with great wonder
第 321 頁 - Rale's village stood, and perhaps curiosity may have carried him thither. If so, he has found a lovely, sequestered spot in the depth of nature's stillness, on a point around which the waters of the Kennebec, not far from their confluence with those of Sandy River, sweep on in their beautiful course, as if to the music of the rapids above ; a spot over which the sad memory of the past, without its passions, will throw a charm, and on which, he will believe, the ceaseless worship of nature might blend...
第 207 頁 - God has made them a terrible scourge for the punishment of our sins. And probably that very sin of ours in neglecting the welfare of their souls.

You have many warm friends here, who will never give up your cause, nor rest till the declaratory bill, as well as all the late duties, are absolutely repealed.
第 295 頁 - Nanrantsouak was the place French or Latin. One can scarcely look at this important manuscript, with its dingy and venerable leaves, without associations of deep interest with those labors, and that life in the 'wilderness, of which it is now the only memorial The dictionary was printed in 1833, in the first volume of the new series of the Memoirs of the American Academy, under the care and direction of Mr. John Pickering, who furnished it with an introduction and notes, which enhance its value.
