Стр. 177 - The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment : for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
Стр. 60 - ... calculations are made, we have the carucate assessed in one and the same record in rates varying from 100 to 200 acres, according to the locality. Land was measured by a compromise between superficial extent and productive value. Instead of trundling the theodolite, they yoked the oxen, and sped the plough. The carucate consisted of so much land as the ploughshare could furrow in the course of the season ; the half-drowned plashes which sunk beneath the tread, or the soil studded with jutting...
Стр. 159 - KEEP, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy Church with thy perpetual mercy: And because the frailty of man without thee cannot but fall, keep us ever by thy help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Стр. 540 - Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Стр. 439 - Amone; Con preghi invita, et al fin toglie in groppa, E per l'orme d'Angelica galoppa. 22 Oh gran bontà de' cavallieri antiqui! Eran rivali, eran di fe diversi, E si sentian degli aspri colpi iniqui Per tutta la persona anco dolersi; E pur per selve oscure e calli obliqui Insieme van senza sospetto aversi. Da quattro sproni il destrier punto arriva Dove una strada in- due si dipartiva.
Стр. 315 - Diverse lingue, orribili favelle, Parole di dolore, accenti d'ira, Voci alte e fioche, e suon di man con elle, Facevano un tumulto, il qual s' aggira Sempre in quell' aria senza tempo tinta, Come la rena quando a turbo spira.
Стр. 612 - I do intend, this year of jubilee coming on, to travel: and because I will not altogether go upon expense, I am determined to put forth some five thousand pound, to be paid me five for one, upon the return of myself, my wife, and my dog from the Turk's court in Constantinople.
Стр. 354 - Let Uther Pendragon do what he can, Eden will run where Eden ran, is the old Cumberland adage ; — but a new race became settled upon Eden's pleasant borders.
Стр. 680 - In the still of the night, the last night season in which he laid himself down to sleep, but not in peace, the attendants were startled by the King's voice — a bitter cry — a cry for help — a cry for deliverance. He had been suddenly awakened by a dreadful dream, as of exquisite anguish befalling him in the ruined church at the foot of the Malwood rampart.
