Sayfa 120 - By and by we hear news of shipwreck in the same place, and then we are to blame if we accept it not for a rock. Upon the back of that comes out a hideous monster with fire and smoke, and then the miserable beholders are bound to take it for a cave.
Sayfa 120 - Now you shall have three ladies walk to gather flowers, and then we must believe the stage to be a garden. By and by we hear news of a shipwreck in the same place, and then we are to blame if we accept it not for a rock.
Sayfa 400 - The Chinese seemed quite conscious of the real character of the occupation in which they were engaged; for, on attempting to enter several other places where the same process was going on, the doors were speedily closed upon the party.

Great King, I take a cup of wine, and pour a libation towards the south — my last farewell to the Emperor. (Pours the libation.) Sovereign of Han, this life is finished : I await thee in the next!"
