Seite 31 - The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Seite 32 - And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be am abhorring unto all flesh.
Seite 39 - ... carriage too ; you shall have any one of these books you like best." Henry thanked the lady with all his heart, and called Boosy in to give his advice whether he should choose a book with a purple morocco cover or one with a red one. When he had fixed upon one, he begged a bit of silk of the lady, and carried it to the tailor to make him a bag for his new Bible ; and that same evening he came to the lady to beg her to teach him to read it. So that day he began; and he was several days over the...
Seite 13 - He used to sit in the verandah* between his bearer's knees, and chew paunft and eat bazaar^ sweetmeats. He wore no shoes nor stockings; but was dressed in pangammahs,§ and had silver bangles\\ on his ancles. No one could have told by his behaviour or manner of speaking that he was not a native, but his pretty light hair and blue eyes at once showed his parentage.

Seite 26 - And that day the little boy was convinced by her arguments. The next discourse which the young lady had with Henry was upon the nature of God. She taught him that God is a Spirit; that he is...
Seite 18 - Bibles, and some pretty little children's books and pictures. When she saw poor little Henry sitting in the 'verandah, as his custom was, between his bearer's knees, with many other native servants surrounding him; she loved him, and was very sorry for him : for, indeed, it is a dreadful thing for little children, to be left among people who know not God. So she took some of the prettiest coloured pictures she had...
Seite 78 - There is a country, now," said Henry, " where there are no castes ; and where we all shall be like dear brothers. It is a better country than this : there are no evil beasts ; there is no more hunger, no more thirst ; there the waters are sure ; there the sun does not scorch by day, nor the moon smite by night. It is a country to which I sometimes think and hope I shall go very soon : I wish, Boosy, you would be persuaded either to go with me or to follow me.
Seite 61 - Braminee fig-tree,* watching the boat as it sailed down the broad stream of the Ganges, till it was hidden by the winding shore. Then Boosy, taking him up in his arms, brought him back to his mamma's house : and from that time he was as much neglected as he had been before this good young lady came; with this difference only (and that indeed was a blessing for which I doubt not he will thank God to all eternity), that he was now able to read the book of God ; whereas, before, he knew not even God's...
