第 50 頁 - England," says Horace Binney, (art. Edward Tilghman, Encyclopedia Amerkana, vol. xiv.,) ''and by each of them men have succeeded in public estimation to an almost equal extent.

It is the city that is referred to, as distinguished, perhaps, from the rest of the State. She has never done it in the face of the world, as Charleston has done it, as Richmond has done it,...
第 51 頁 - No one of his contemporaries would have felt injured by his receiving this praise. Upon questions which to most men are perplexing at first, and continue to be so until they have worked their way to a conclusion by elaborate reasoning, he seemed to possess an instinct, which seized the true result before he had taken time to prove it.
