Sivu 305 - Hope deferred maketh the heart sick : but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Sivu 445 - Howitt. With an Appendix of the most remarkable and best authenticated Stories of Apparitions, Dreams, Second Sight, Table-Turning, and SpiritRapping, &c.
Sivu 21 - I'll tell you, friend! a wise man and a fool. You'll find, if once the monarch acts the monk, Or, cobbler-like, the parson will be drunk, Worth makes the man, and want of it, the fellow; The rest is all but leather or prunella.

At other times he has a tender and delicate sort of melancholy in his disposition, not less agreeable in its way.
Sivu 62 - I have asked this question formerly, and been at a loss to resolve it ; but I think I can answer it now. I will suppose myself born a thousand years before Noah was born or thought of. I rise with the sun ; I worship ; I prepare my breakfast ; I swallow a bucket of goat's milk, and a dozen good sizeable cakes.
