第 295 頁 - The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, At the presence of the LORD of the whole earth.
第 307 頁 - Sir, you may destroy this little institution ; — it is weak ; it is in your hands ! I know it is one of the lesser lights in the literary horizon of our country. You may put it out. But if you do so, you must carry through your work !
