Seite 212 - Collections; they were small chapmen's books, and cheap, 40 or 50 in all. My father's little library consisted chiefly of books in polemic divinity, most of which I read, and have since often regretted that, at a time when I had such a thirst for knowledge, more proper books had not fallen in my way, since it was now resolved I should not be a clergyman.

I told him that since the master would not punish him I would, and I should do so as often as I was punished for him. Then I drubbed him well. The boy never came to school any more. And so that unfortunate matter ended. Though I was often beaten for my play, and my little roguish tricks, yet I don't remember that I was ever beaten for my lessons...
Seite 31 - ... the sea. Then from the side of the ship which was from the town arose a great smoke, which covered all the ship, and in that smoke she vanished away ; but some saw her keel sink into the water. This was seen by many, men and women, and it continued about a quarter of an hour.
Seite 197 - I might have bought with the rest of the money, and laughed at me so much for my folly that I cried with vexation; and the reflection gave me more chagrin than the whistle gave me pleasure.
