Стр. 155 - Anon they move In perfect phalanx to the Dorian mood Of flutes and soft recorders...
Стр. 445 - For those purposes they think some part of the wealth of the country is as usefully employed, as it can be in fomenting the luxury of individuals. It is the public ornament. It is the public consolation. It nourishes the public hope. The poorest man finds his own importance and dignity in it...
