But the enemy was not able to take possession of her, and circumstances soon permitted her flag again to be hoisted.
Seite 467 - They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.
Seite 166 - not a minute ; if your squadron appears in sight before the treaty is actually signed by the Dey, and the prisoners sent off, ours would capture them.
