Sivu 6 - Co. of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof they claim as proprietors, in the words following, to wit : " Tadeuskund, the Last King of the Lenape. An Historical Tale." In conformity to the Act of the Congress of the United States...
Sivu 133 - Christian morals, that no merits could atone for it. I cannot but think emulation an unhallowed principle of action ; — as scarcely, if at all, to be disjoined from jealousy and envy, from pride and contention ; — incompatible with loving our neighbour as ourselves ; — and a principle of such potency as to be likely to engross the mind, and turn it habitually and violently from the motives which it should be the great business of education to cherish and render predominant ; namely, a sense...

Sivu 86 - And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shall teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Sivu 86 - And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Sivu 142 - I entreat you, the experiment for yourselves, and you will find that the " ways of religion are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
Sivu 47 - Is there any putting off of the old man, and putting on of the new man ? And yet, can it be denied, that this is the only temper to which the promise of pardon is made ? It is the temper in...
Sivu 104 - Patience.—Scarcely any disposition is more wanted in life than this, and education affords ample means of instilling and fostering it. Man is not only called to endure many natural evils, and many evils brought upon him by his fellow-creatures: but in his Christian warfare with his own innate depravity, he must continually mortify his strongest inclinations and restrain his fondest wishes. " He that will come after me, must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.
Sivu 32 - ... the human face divine," to recognise her smile, and to shew itself sensible of her affection in the little arts she employs to entertain it. Does it not, in no long time, return that smile, and repay her maternal caresses with looks and motions so expressive, that she cannot mistake their import ? She will not doubt, then, the importance of fostering in its bosom those benevolent sympathies which delight her, by banishing from her nursery whatever is likely to counteract them.
Sivu 33 - I may be pronounced fanciful; but I certainly think it would be of importance to keep sour and illhumoured faces out of a nursery, even though such faces were not commonly accompanied by corresponding conduct. I am persuaded that I have seen a very bad effect produced by a face of this kind on the countenance and mind of an infant. Is it not reasonable to suppose, that if an infant sympathizes with a smile, it may also sympathize with a scowl, and catch somewhat of the inward disposition which distorts...
