Side 147 - Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old ? can he enter a second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

It is impossible to describe the scorn, the loathing, and contempt with which the wife of Macgregor regarded this wretched petitioner for the poor boon of existence.
Side 139 - And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things.
