עמוד 199 - The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown.

עמוד 124 - Him that sitteth upon the throne, and liveth for ever and ever, they will protect freedom in her last asylum, and never desert that cause which you sustained by your labours, and Cemented with your blood'. And Thou, sole ruler among the children of men, to whom the shields of the earth belong, gird on thy sword, thou Most mighty : go forth with our hosts in the day of battle!
