Seite 50 - About twenty-eight years since Mr. Yarranton found out a vast quantity of Roman cinders, near the walls of the city of Worcester, from whence he and others carried away many thousand tons or loads up the river Severn, unto their iron-furnaces, to be melted down into iron, with a mixture of the Forest of Dean iron-stone...
Seite 85 - ANXE, the wife of IZAAK WALTON; Who was a Woman of remarkable prudence, and of the Primitive Piety ; her great, and general, Knowledge being adorned with such true Humility, and blest with so much Christian Meekness as made her worthy of a more memorable monument.
