الصفحة 46 - Discourse of the Liberty of Prophesying, showing the Unreasonableness of prescribing to other Men's Faith, and the Iniquity of persecuting Different Opinions.
الصفحة 20 - And now, after such a sublimity of malice, I will not instance in the sacrilegious ruin of the neighbouring temples, which needs must have perished in the flame, — nor in the disturbing the ashes of our intombed kings, devouring their dead ruins like sepulchral dogs...
