الصفحة 80 - Let him study the Holy Scriptures, especially the New Testament. Therein are contained the words of eternal life. It has God for its Author ; salvation for its end ; and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.
الصفحة 453 - There are few Englishmen who would not think their country absolutely ruined, were French wines sold in England so cheap and in such abundance as to supplant, in some measure, all ale and home-brewed liquors : But would we lay aside prejudice, it would not be difficult to prove, that nothing could be more innocent, perhaps advantageous.
