Sida 51 - s near ? a China jar. China's the passion of her soul ; A cup, a plate, a dish, a bowl, Can kindle wishes in her breast, Inflame with joy, or break her rest. Some gems collect ; some medals prize, And view the rust with lovers...
Sida 181 - And they said, Go to, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven ; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
Sida 106 - Girl to name the day, the blissfull day ! when she will reward all my faithfull services ... in three words we are to be married on Wednesday next — On that auspicious day, think it no sin to wash your philosophic evening pipe, with a glass or two extraordinary, to hail your friend, and wish him good speed into the realms of Matrimony.
