第 60 頁 - Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright: at the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
第 260 頁 - The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
第 167 頁 - And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them : and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

The inhabitants are inspired with a respect for the female sex, Who in this land correspond with the perfect features of nature ; Their young maidens have cheeks resembling red blossoms, And the complexion of their beauties is like the white gem : Of old has connubial affection been highly esteemed among them, Husband and wife delighting in mutual harmony.
第 35 頁 - Oh, the roast beef of old England, And oh the old English roast beef!
第 181 頁 - The spacious streets are exceedingly smooth and level, Each being crossed by others at intervals : On either side perambulate men and women, In the centre career along the carriages and horses : The mingled sound of voices is heard in the shops at evening; During winter the heaped-up snows adhere to the pathway : Lamps are displayed at night along the street sides, Whose radiance twinkles like the stars of the sky.
第 33 頁 - The figure was completed by his apparently warlike, but really peaceable implements, which no respectable chinaman would be seen without, viz., the fan with its highly-worked sheath: the purse or tobacco-pouch, in the exquisite embroidery of which great ingenuity is displayed; a variety of silver tooth and ear-picks, with a pocket for his watch, the belt to which these are attached having a small leather case fixed to it, to contain his flint and steel.
