Стр. 11 - Thus to relieve the wretched was his pride, And e'en his failings leaned to virtue's side ; But in his duty prompt at every call, He watched and wept, he prayed and felt for all.

Стр. 254 - But thou, of temples old, or altars new, Standest alone — with nothing like to thee — Worthiest of God, the holy and the true.

Majesty, Power, Glory, Strength, and Beauty, all are aisled In this eternal ark of worship undefiled.

That did not hinder two other Sisters from coming to join them a little after in their heroic enterprise. Their patience, their kindness, their courage, and their perseverance have gained! the esteem, affection, and love of every one. They are succeeding : they have already produced a considerable change, and are doing great good. The talents displayed in the direction of their school,...
Стр. 217 - April, 1847, and we arrived on the bank of the Neosho, a tributary of the Arkansas, situated about 130 miles from Westport, frontier town of the State of Missouri. To you, my dear Father, who have many times traversed the great extent, from the States to the Pacific, who have traveled over the Rocky Mountains and their valleys—our pains, troubles, and fatigues must appear truly insignificant.
Стр. 5 - What i» a gentleman ? Say, is it birth Makes a man noble, or adds to his worth? Is there a family tree to be had Spreading enough to conceal what is bad ? Seek out the man who has God for his Guide; Nothing to blush for, and nothing to hide j Be he a noble, or be he in trade, This is the gentleman Nature has made.
Стр. 215 - Chief replied, in the name of the Council : " Our Great Father is very kind ; he loves his red-skinned children. Hear what we have to say on this subject. We do not wish any more such missionaries as we have had during several years ; for they never did us any good. Send them to the whites ; perhaps they may succeed better with them.
