Сторінка 416 - (his old Schoolmaster at Huntingdon), ' that Dr. Alablaster had preached flat Popery at Paul's Cross ; and that the Bishop of Winchester ' (Dr. Neile) ' had commanded him as his Diocesan, He should preach nothing to the contrary.

Сторінка 426 - Now let God arise, and his enemies shall be scattered' ; and he following us as we slowly marched, I heard him say, 'I profess they run !' and then was the Scots army all in disorder and running, both right wing and left and main battle.
Сторінка 47 - Now for my life, it is a miracle of thirty years, which to relate, were not a history, but a piece of poetry, and would sound to common ears like a fable.
Сторінка 57 - Sleep is a death ; — O make me try, By sleeping, what it is to die ! And as gently lay my head On my grave, as now my bed. Howe'er I rest, great God, let me Awake again at last with thee.
Сторінка 46 - Whosoever feels not the warm gale and gentle ventilation of this spirit, though I feel his pulse, I dare not say he lives ; for truly without this, to me there is no heat under the tropic, nor any light, though I dwelt in the body of the sun.
