第 309 頁 - I love you, because you haven't any father, or mother, or friends — because you've been a poor, abused child ! I love you, and I want you to be good. I am very unwell, Topsy, and I think I shan't live a great while ; and it really grieves me to have you be so naughty. I wish you would try to be good, for my sake ; its only a little while I shall be with you.

第 309 頁 - don't you know that Jesus loves all alike? He is just as willing to love you as me. He loves you just as I do, only more, because he is better. He will help you to be good, and you can go to heaven at last, and be an angel for ever, just as much as if you were white. Only think of it, Topsy, you can be one of those spirits bright Uncle Tom sings about.

第 409 頁 - Pleasant the wind's low sigh, And the gleaming of the west, And the turf whereon we lie ; When the burden and the heat Of labour's task are o'er, And kindly voices greet The tired one at his door.

第 307 頁 - I don't doubt it," said St. Clare. " Tell me of the lovely rule o"f woman! I never saw above a dozen women that wouldn't half kill a horse, or a servant, either, if they had their own way with them ! let alone a man.
第 41 頁 - Yes, as much as a poor man may love a king, and kneeled down and prayed for him every night, that he might conquer those Danish wolves ; but it was not to be so. ALFRED. You could not love Alfred better than I did. GUBBA. But what is become of him ? ALFRED.
