He was allowed about six minutes for the silent reading, and about an hour for the writing. The following is the narrative : — " Cyrus, the Persian prince, had many masters, -who endeavored to teach him every thing that was good ; and he was educated with several little boys about his own age.
Halaman 13 - ... the principles of piety, justice, and a sacred regard to truth, love to their country, humanity and universal benevolence, sobriety, industry, and frugality, chastity, moderation, and temperance, and those other virtues which are the ornament of human society and the basis upon which a republican constitution is founded...
