It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it ? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it ?

As soon as I got to Manchester I laid out all my money, things were so cheap; and I made good profit. I soon found that there were three profits — the raw material, the dyeing, and the manufacturing.
