Side 239 - They look up with their pale and sunken faces, And their look is dread to see, For they 'mind you of their angels in high places, With eyes turned on Deity. "How long...
Side 212 - The property which every man has in his own labour, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable. The patrimony of a poor man lies in the strength and dexterity of his hands; and to hinder him from employing this strength and dexterity in what manner he thinks proper without injury to his neighbour, is a plain violation of this most sacred property.
Side 214 - ... the most effectual plan for advancing a people to greatness, is to maintain that order of things which nature has pointed out ; by allowing every man, as long as he observes the rules of justice, to pursue his own interest in his own way, and to bring both his industry and his capital into the freest competition with those of his fellow-citizens.
Side 239 - The young lambs are bleating in the meadows; The young birds are chirping in the nest; The young fawns are playing with the shadows ; The young flowers are blowing toward the west; But the young, young children, O my brothers ! They are weeping bitterly.

Side 308 - Principal. Worcester Academy, Worcester, Mass. "Your book has given us good satisfaction. It is the best School History I know of to give the student a clear conception of the origin and the development of our institutions. It presents to him lucidly and forcefully the questions which have been either the sectional or the party issues of the past; it portrays in a singularly felicitous manner our wonderful growth in population and resources.
Side 309 - It is an admirable presentatiOn Of the Origin and grOwth Of our natiOn. From cover to cover it is made intensely interesting, not only by striking illustrations and complete maps, but by the arrangement of the text and the facts presented in a clear, lOgical manner. The references to other text-books in history is a commendable feature. I fully agree with the author's statement in the preface as to the best method of studying the history of our country.
Side 212 - ... is a plain violation of this most sacred property. It is a manifest encroachment upon the just liberty both of the workman, and of those who might be disposed to employ him. As it hinders the one from working at what he thinks proper, so it hinders the others from employing whom they think proper.
