Стр. 410 - Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth...
Стр. 562 - Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire; Hands, that the rod of empire might have sway'd, Or waked to ecstasy the living lyre. But Knowledge to their eyes her ample page Rich with the spoils of time did ne'er unroll; Chill Penury repress'd their noble rage, And froze the genial current of the souL...

Add to this a parrot, with the legs of a sea-gull ; a skate with the head of a shark ; and a bird of such monstrous dimensions, that a side bone of it will dine three real carnivorous Englishmen ; — together with many other productions...
Стр. 560 - True wit is nature to advantage dress'd; What oft was thought, but ne'er so well express'd; Something, whose truth convinc'd at sight we find, That gives us back the image of our mind.
Стр. 452 - I power of my hands, might one season be without, be one winter's space, then with this host I But around me lie iron bonds, presseth this cord of chain ; I am powerless...

Стр. 37 - ... a perspective glass. When you shut the doors of this grotto it becomes on the instant, from a luminous room, a Camera obscura, on the walls of which all the objects of the river, hills, woods, and boats, are forming a moving picture in their visible radiations; and when you have a mind to light it up, it affords you a very different scene. It is finished with shells interspersed with...
