עמוד 313 - Plus me plaist le séjour qu'ont basty mes ayeux, Que des palais romains le front audacieux : Plus que le marbre dur, me plaist l'ardoise fine. Plus mon Loyre gaulois, que le Tybre latin, Plus mon petit Lyre, que le mont Palatin Et plus que l'air marin, la douceur angevine.
עמוד 313 - Quand reverrai-je, hélas, de mon petit village Fumer la cheminée, et en quelle saison Reverrai-je le clos de ma pauvre maison, Qui m'est une province et beaucoup davantage ? Plus me...

עמוד 294 - Britanny and other parts of the kingdom, was one of the richest men of his day in the time of Charles VII. He became master of all this enormous property at the age of twenty, and, by the most prodigal and absurd extravagance, dissipated nearly the whole of it.

עמוד 295 - Each one of them had his horse and his servant; they were all dressed in robes of scarlet and furs, and had rich appointments. Chandeliers, censers, crosses, sacred vessels in great quantity, and all of gold and silver, were transported with them, together, says the historian, with many organs, each carried by six men. He was exceedingly anxious that all the priests, of his chapel should be entitled to wear the mitre, and he sent many embassies to Rome to obtain this privilege, but without success.
עמוד 345 - ... wealth. Wilson had been selected from among the crew, by the approving eye of the commander, and appointed to a place of trust and honor. Yet these men conspired to murder their benefactor, and instigated the crew to join in their execrable scheme. Not contented with the destruction of their commander, that nothing might be wanting to fill up the measure of their wickedness, they formed the horrible plan of destroying, at the same time, all of their companions, whom sickness and suffering had...
