Stran 21 - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the Prophets.
Stran 418 - East by a line to be drawn along the middle of the river St. Croix, from its mouth in the bay of Fundy to its source, and from its source directly north to the aforesaid highlands which divide the rivers that fall into the Atlantic ocean from those which fall into the river St. Lawrence...
Stran 454 - Jerusalem was the brightest of all the cities of the east, and fortified above all other towns, so strong, that the Roman conqueror thereof, and the master of the whole world besides, exclaimed, on entering the city of David, and looking...
Stran 4 - There, were congregated the leaders and chiefs of those bands of murderers and miscreants, that carried death and destruction into the remote American settlements. There, civilized Europe revelled with savage America ; and ladies of education and refinement mingled in the society of those whose only distinction was to wield the bloody tomahawk and scalping, knife.

Stran 234 - Canada, and who saw him fall at their bead, in a manner worthy of him and worthy of them, cannot be too much applauded. I shall take a pleasure, Sir, in facilitating a design so full of respect to the deceased : and as soon as I am informed of the measures...
Stran 191 - Going across this last, he passes the English and French cathedrals, the government offices, and palace of justice on his right ; and has the site of the old castle of St. Lewis, and the platform overlooking the harbor, on his left. Passing by these, and continually ascending for about half a mile beyond, he reaches the ramparts and gates on the upper side of the city ; and going through these, he comes to the open lawn in front of the glacis, beyond which is the suburb of St.
Stran 448 - London for books, stationery, plate, jewelry, and a variety of other articles, which, as British settlers, they would not consent to do without, beyond the period in which they could pay for them ; and that period would begin after their first or second crop of corn had been raised, and the first produce of their herds and flocks had been realized.
Stran 192 - Passing by these, and continuing for about half a mile beyond, he reaches the ramparts and gates on the upper side of the city ; and going through these, he comes to the open lawn in front of the glacis, beyond which is the suburb of St. Roch, on the level ground along the southern bank of the St. Charles river.
