For the blackness of ashes shall mark where it stood, And a wild mother scream o'er her famishing brood.
Стр. 140 - Stuart is come over to claim the crown of his ancestors, to win it, or to perish in the attempt; Lochiel, who, my father has often told me, was our firmest friend, may stay at home, and learn from the newspapers the fate of his prince...
Стр. 30 - I feel, with an intensity unfathomable by words, my utter nothingness, impotence, and worthlessness, in and for myself. I have learned what a sin is against an infinite imperishable being, such as is the soul of man...
Стр. 202 - ... occasion of our weak brother's falling, the which will be all required at their hands ; which will be too heavy a burden for them to bear, if they repent it not with speed. For they that know their Master's will, and do it not, shall be beaten with many stripes.
Стр. 245 - belonging to the descendants of that old chief who said there were but three persons in the world entitled to be called ' The ' — the King, the Pope, and the Chisholm.
