Seite 326 - This night shall be born Our heavenly King. He neither shall be born In housen nor in hall, Nor in the place of Paradise, But in an ox's stall. He neither shall be clothed In purple nor in pall, But all in fair linen As were babies all. He neither shall be rocked In silver nor in gold, But in a wooden cradle That rocks on the mould.

Seite 263 - I shall be happy to give you any information in my power.' 'Was it in this room that you gave your instructions as to the copying of the document?
Seite 124 - All young ladies will imagine, as soon as this bill is carried, that they will be instantly married. School-boys believe that gerunds and supines will be abolished, and that currant-tarts must ultimately come down in price ; the corporal and sergeant are sure of double pay ; bad poets will expect a demand for their epics ; fools will be disappointed, as they always are.

Schoolboys believe that Gerunds and Supines will be abolished, and that Currant Tarts must ultimately come down in price ; the Corporal and Sergeant are sure of double pay ; bad Poets will expect a demand for their Epics.
