Seite 54 - I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman ; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any prince of Europe, should dare to.
Seite 81 - ... and mother's sake. Sweet Will, be careful to take the advice of those friends which are by me desired to advise you for your education. Serve God diligently morning and evening; and recommend yourself unto Him, and have Him before your eyes in all your ways.
