Сторінка 102 - The discovery of America, and that of a passage to the East Indies by the Cape of Good Hope, are the two greatest and most important events recorded in the history of mankind.
Сторінка 328 - Russias, or to any others inhabiting within any of his countries, territories, and dominions (except as aforesaid) ; and that such powers and clauses be inserted in the said commission as have been usual, and are according to former precedents; and they are likewise to prepare, and lay before his majesty at this board, a draft of such instructions as may be proper to be sent to...
Сторінка 328 - ... ships, vessels, and goods that are or shall be taken, and to hear and determine the same ; and according to the course of Admiralty, and the Law of Nations, to adjudge and condemn all such...
Сторінка 542 - ... whole, whose principal object in going to sea is trade, the working of the junk being only a secondary object. Every one is a shareholder, having the liberty of putting a certain quantity of goods on board ; with which he trades, wheresoever the vessel may touch, caring very little about how soon she may arrive at the port of destination.

Next day the wind resumed its former direction, and after pulling against it all the morning among the shoals and breakers, and gaining only three miles, we were obliged to take refuge in the mouth of a small river. From a limestone ridge, about a league inland, we obtained a view of come very remote blue land in the north-east quarter, in all...
