Halaman 55 - ... to our own children and dear posterity when they shall reproach their fathers, as we do ours, and tell us, 'You had an opportunity to root out this cursed race from the world under the favour and protection of a true...

Halaman 317 - I gave up my two dear unprovided children into his hands ; but he has no compassion, and suffers them and their poor dying mother to beg their bread at• his door, and to crave, as if it were an alms, what he is bound under hand and seal, besides the most sacred promises, to supply them with ; himself, at the same time, living in a profusion of plenty. It is too much for me.
