Sida 31 - Inspired repulsed battalions to engage, And taught the doubtful battle where to rage. So when an angel, by divine command, With rising tempests shakes a guilty land (Such as of late o'er pale Britannia passed), Calm and serene he drives the furious blast; And, pleased the Almighty's orders to perform, Rides in the whirlwind and directs the storm.

Sida 77 - To civilize the rude unpolish'd world, And lay it under the restraint of laws; To make man mild, and sociable to man ; To cultivate the wild licentious savage With wisdom, discipline, and liberal arts...
