Seite 258 - Saddleback, whose furrowed sides were gilt by the noon-day sun, whilst its brow appeared of a sad purple from the shadow of the clouds as they sailed slowly by it.
Seite 262 - ... who conducted us to a neat white house in the village of Grange, which is built on a rising ground in the midst of a valley ; round it the mountains form an awful amphitheatre, and through it obliquely runs the Derweut clear as glass, and showing under its bridge every trout that passes.
