We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that " except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it.
עמוד 179 - The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power, And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave, Await alike the inevitable hour: The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
עמוד 281 - The second * day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America.
