Pŕgina 165 - I put my hat upon my head And walked into the Strand, And there I met another man . Whose hat was in his hand.
Pŕgina 108 - But in other, and in but too many instances, the glens of the Highlands have been drained, not of their superfluity of population, but of the whole mass of the inhabitants, dispossessed by an unrelenting avarice, which will be one day found to have been as shortsighted as it is unjust and selfish.
Pŕgina 36 - Holde me excused, for why my will is good, Men to induce vnto vertue and goodnes ; I write no ieste ne tale of Robin Hood, Nor sowe no sparkles ne sede of viciousnes ; Wise men loue vertue, wilde people wantonnes...
