Seite 58 - ... between people, who, though separated by an ocean, and under different governments, have the same language, a similar religion, and kindred blood.
Seite 405 - I take this method to request such of you as are true citizens and willing to enjoy the liberty I bring you, to remain still in your houses: — And those, if any there be, that are friends to the king, will instantly repair to the fort and join the hair-buyer General, and fight like men.
Seite 483 - THE sun is bright, — the air is clear, The darting swallows soar and sing, And from the stately elms I hear The bluebird prophesying Spring. So blue yon winding river flows, It seems an outlet from the sky, Where waiting till the west wind blows, The freighted clouds at anchor lie.
Seite 308 - Heaven, and glances at that divinely consoling proclamation, " come unto me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest:" The ruin of the steeple is about thirty feet high, and mantled, to its very summit, with ivy.
