Stran 416 - Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do : and behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.
Stran 438 - ... that he will support the constitution of the United States, and that he doth absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to every foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty whatever, and particularly, by name, the prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, whereof he was before a citizen or subject; which proceedings shall be recorded by the clerk of the court.
Stran 120 - I'll praise my Maker while I've breath, And when my voice is lost in death, Praise shall employ my nobler pow'rs : My days of praise shall ne'er be past, While life, and thought, and being last, Or immortality endures.
Stran 474 - I thank thee, Blackgown, and thee Frenchman," addressing M. Jolly et, "for taking so much pains to come and visit us; never has the earth been so beautiful, nor the sun so bright as today; never has our river been so calm, nor so free from rocks, which your canoes have removed as they passed; never has our tobacco had so fine a flavor nor our corn appeared so beautiful as we behold it today.

Stran 453 - I thank thee, black gown, and thee, O Frenchman," addressing himself to Monsieur Jollyet, "for having taken so much trouble to come to visit us. Never has the earth been so beautiful, or the sun so bright, as today; never has our river been so calm, or so clear of rocks, which your canoes have removed in passing; never has our tobacco tasted so good, or our corn appeared so fine, as we now see them.
Stran 455 - It now only remains for me to speak of the calumet, than which there is nothing among them more mysterious or more esteemed. Men do not pay to the crowns and sceptres of kings the honor they pay to it ; it seems to be the god of peace and war, the arbiter of life and death.
Stran 470 - Missisipi river has its source in several lakes* in the country of the nations to the north ; it is narrow at the mouth of the Miskousing; its current, which runs south, is slow and gentle ; on the right is a considerable chain of very high mountains, and on the left fine lands ; it is in many places studded with islands.
Stran 474 - ... never has our tobacco had so fine a flavor nor our corn appeared so beautiful as we behold it today. Here is my son, that I give thee, that thou mayst know my heart.
