Said his sister's angel to the leader, "Is my brother come?" And he said, "Nay, but his maiden daughter.
Sida 1493 - What Virgil wrote in the vigour of his age, in plenty and at ease, I have undertaken to translate in my declining years; struggling with wants, oppressed with sickness, curbed in my genius, liable to be misconstrued in all I write...
Sida 1619 - ... which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. No man yet knows what it is, nor can, till that person has exhibited it. Where is the master who could have taught...
