Seite 119 - The members of the first, deemed the most sacred, had it for their province to study the principles of religion ; to perform its functions ; and to cultivate the sciences. They were the priests, the instructors, and philosophers of the nation.
Seite 155 - I avoided without difficulty ; but I am happy to this day, in the reflection that I did not strike it.
Seite 154 - ... side ; and while he engages the elephant's attention upon the horse, the footman behind gives him a drawn stroke just above the heel, or what in man is called the tendon of Achilles.
