Sayfa 215 - ... into the vault. The spirit was solemnly required to perform its promise, but nothing more than silence ensued : the person supposed to be accused by the spirit, then went down with several others, but no effect was perceived. Upon their return they examined the girl, but could draw no confession from her. Between two and three she desired and was permitted to go home with her father. " It is, therefore, the opinion of the whole assembly, that the child has some art of making or counterfeiting...
Sayfa 44 - And was so proud, that should he meet The Twelve Apostles in the street, He'd turn his nose up at them all, And shove his Saviour from the wall...
Sayfa 302 - em all: Not Caesar's empress would I deign to prove; No, make me mistress to the man I love; If there be yet another name more free, More fond than mistress, make me that to thee!
