第 333 頁 - Amidst this company stood Mr Watt, the man whose genius discovered the means of multiplying our national resources to a degree perhaps even beyond his own stupendous powers of calculation and combination ; bringing the treasures of the abyss to the summit of the earth — giving the feeble arm of man the momentum of an Afrite — commanding manufactures to arise, as the rod of the prophet produced water in the desert, affording the means of dispensing with that time and tide which wait for no man,...
第 331 頁 - And well, with ready hand and heart, Each task of toilsome duty taking, Did one dear inmate take her part. The last asleep, the earliest waking. Her hands each nightly couch prepared, And frugal meal on which they fared ; Unfolding spread the servet white, And decked the board with tankard bright.

She and the same man worked in the night, making a hole in the earth, after lifting the boards; which they did by scratching it up with their hands, not to make any noise, till she left not a nail upon her fingers; she helping the man to carry the earth, as they dug it, in a sheet on his back, out at the window into the garden.
