Stran 64 - a mirror and pattern to all, instructing both by word and example, excellent in his preaching, but still more so in his works. He was a doctrine to all, a guide to the religious, a life to the poor, a support to orphans, a protection to widows, a father to the fatherless, a rule to monks, and a model to teachers ; becoming all to all, that so he might gain all to God.
Stran 44 - LET the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, " There is a man child conceived.
Stran 223 - ... faithfully to observe the same by a necessary relation my obedience hath to your Majesty's commands, to which I deem it not unseasonable to annex this voluntary protestation : that, whoever, ill-affected to the state, shall dare to land in those parts of Wales, where I have any employments under your Majesty, must resolve with himself to make his entrance and irruption over my belly.
Stran 241 - ... to borrow the words of a modern writerf. Humphrey Llwyd had four children, two sons and two daughters. One of the former, named Henry, settled at Cheam in Surrey, and his great grandson, the Rev. Robert Lloyd, who was rector of St. Paul's, Covent Garden, made un unsuccessful effort to claim the Barony of Lumley, * It does not appear to what works he here alludes.

Stran 149 - Hibernian, vol. iv. cap. vp 548, where are the " constitutions and canons ecclesiastical treated upon by the archbishops of Canterbury and York, and the rest of the bishops and clergy, in their several synods.
Stran 163 - Appendix." 221 of his effusions, however, on her death are now extant, though it is probable that, in the pensive tranquillity of his declining age, he must have devoted some tributary strains to this mournful subject. A transient allusion is all that remains.

Stran 119 - Cadwalader,1 who were buried in a double vault before the high altar, although Owen, on account of his public incest with his cousin-german, had died excommunicated by the blessed martyr St. Thomas, the bishop of that see having been enjoined to seize a proper opportunity of removing his body from the church.
Stran 173 - I have not been able to meet with a copy of this work; and it does not appear, that the author of the " Memoirs" was more fortunate, or that he was even aware of its existence.

Stran 20 - As his buckler, beaming wide, Decks the courser's slender side, With his steel of spotless mould, Ermined vest and spurs of gold. Think not, youth, that e'er from me Hate or spleen shall flow to thee : Nobler meed thy virtues claim, Eulogy and tuneful fame. Ah ! much sooner comes thy bier Than thy nuptial feast, I fear ; Ere thou makes the foeman bleed, Ravens on thy corse shall feed.
