Stran 327 - I greet you much, and make known to you that Owen Glyndor has raised a quarrel, of which the object is, if King Richard be alive, to restore him to his crown ; and if not, that my honoured nephew, who is the right heir to the said crown, shall be king of England, and that the said Owen will assert his right in Wales.
Stran 326 - The friar looked pale, when his error he knew; The friar looked red, and the friar looked blue; And heels over head, from the point of a rock, He plunged, without stopping to pull off his frock. He dived very deep, but he dived all in vain, The prize he had slighted he found not again: Many times did the friar his diving renew, And deeper and deeper the river still grew. Gwenwynwyn gazed long, of his senses in doubt, To see the...
Stran 441 - Who was it that thus cried? Why, worthy thane, You do unbend your noble strength, to think So brainsickly of things. Go get some water, And wash this filthy witness from your hand. Why did you bring these daggers from the place? They must lie there: go carry them, and smear The sleepy grooms with blood.
Stran 326 - Then he gave him the stone ; but, ere more he could speak, Wrath came on the friar, so holy and meek. He had stretched forth his hand to receive the red gold, And he thought himself mocked by Gwenwynwyn the Bold ; And in scorn of the gift, and in rage at the giver, He jerked it immediately into the river. Gwenwynwyn, aghast, not a syllable spake ; The philosopher's stone made a duck and a drake ; Two systems of circles a moment were seen. And the stream smoothed them off, as they never had been.
Stran 216 - With wild infracted course, and lessened roar, It gains a safer bed, and steals at last Along the mazes of the quiet vale.
Stran ix - Powys and other scenes of historic interest, and yet having1 hitherto formed a portion of Wales which has not received its due proportion of archaeological illustration. A county history is the great desideratum ; but considering the varied qualifications required to meet in one person, to enable him to write a good county history, who is equal to such a herculean task ? It is seldom that in one mind can be found " the profundity of knowledge, the patient and laborious research, the skill in generalisation,...
Stran x - Parochiale, applying to all buildings and remains of towns, villages, parishes, etc., including all public civil buildings, etc. 6. A Chartularium, including as complete an account as practicable of all ancient documents referring to the five preceding classes. The manorial history of the county may be illustrated, and the public record office and the muniment rooms of the magnates of the county would form an almost inexhaustible source of information under this division. It would be proposed to...
Stran 310 - Andegavie archiepiscopis episcopis abbatibus prioribus comitibus baronibus justiciariis vicecomitibus prepositis ministris et omnibus ballivis et fidelibus suis salutem. Sciatis nos concessisse et hac carta nostra...
Stran 327 - Kereynon, are lately come into our possession ; wherefore I moreover entreat you that you will forbear making inroad into my said lands, or to do any damage to my said tenantry, and that you furnish them with provisions at a certain reasonable price as you would wish that I should treat you : and upon this point be pleased to send me an answer. Very dear and well be• \Vitherciuton.
Stran vi - Sheriffs of Shropshire, with their Armorial Bearings and Notices, Genealogical and Biographical, of their families.
