Side 283 - thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? The glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength : He goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted ; Neither turneth he back from the sword.
Side 107 - Let us walk as- children of the light and of the day, that we may not fall under this condemnation.
Side 68 - Mr. Blunt!" said I, addressing our lately fellowpassenger, whom we now joined, " you will apologise to the officer to whom you applied such objectionable terms? you cannot but regret them.
