A roof for when the slow dark hours begin. May not the darkness hide it from my face? You cannot miss that inn.
Сторінка 439 - No taunts or sarcasms,' Lord Canning continued, 'come from what quarter they may, will turn me from the path which I believe to be that of my public duty.

Сторінка 264 - Go, go,' but they would not. Whereupon the Nana ordered his soldiers, and they went and pulled them forcibly away, seizing them by the arm, but they could not pull away the doctor's wife, who there remained. '"Then, just as the Sepoys were going to fire, the Padre (chaplain) called out to the Nana, and requested leave to read prayers before they died. The Nana granted it, and the Padre's...

He had expended his admiration, I suppose, for when Somers showed his own exhibition, he was captious and said, ' You copy nature too closely ! It is the place itself! they are views, not pictures.
Сторінка 289 - I don't care two straws for the abuse of the papers, British or Indian. I am for ever wondering at myself for not doing so, but it really is the fact. Partly from want of time to care, partly because an enormous task is before me, and all other tasks look small.
Сторінка 143 - There is an odd, mysterious thing going on, still unexplained. It is this. In one part of the country the native police have been making little cakes — 'chupatties (1 — and sending them on from place to place.
