עמוד xxvii - So spake the seraph Abdiel, faithful found, Among the faithless faithful only he; Among innumerable false unmoved, Unshaken, unseduced, unterrified, His loyalty he kept, his love, his zeal ; Nor number nor example with him wrought To swerve from truth, or change his constant mind, Though single.
עמוד 13 - Or man, or woman. Yet I argue not Against Heaven's hand or will, nor bate a jot Of heart or hope, but still bear up and steer Right onward.
עמוד 12 - Salmatius and Morus make up as great a Triumph as That of Decebalus, whom too for ought I know you shall have forced as Trajan the other, to make themselves away out of a just Desperation.
עמוד 641 - Resolved, &c., that all aids and supplies, and aids to his Majesty in Parliament, are the sole gift of the Commons ; and all bills for the granting of any such aids and supplies ought to begin with the Commons ; and that it is the undoubted and sole right of the Commons to direct, limit and appoint in such bills the ends, purposes, considerations, conditions, limitations and qualifications of such grants, which ought not to be changed or altered by the House of Lords.
עמוד 395 - They have signed and sealed ten thousand pounds a year more to the Duchess of Cleveland ; who has likewise near ten thousand pounds a year out of the new farm of the country excise of beer and ale ; five thousand pounds a year out of the Post Office ; and, they say, the reversion of all the King's leases, the reversion of all places in the Custom House, the green-wax, and, indeed, what not?

עמוד 22 - Now, after all this, I can say, that, besides the pleasure of the sight of these glorious things, I may now shut my eyes against any other objects, nor for the future trouble myself to see things of state and show, as being sure never to see the like again in this world.
עמוד 9 - Spaine, to very good purpose, as I believe, and the gaineing of those four languages ; besides, he is a scholler, and well read in the Latin and Greek authors; and no doubt of an approved conversation, for he comes now lately out of the house of the Lord Fairfax, who was a Generall, where he was intrusted to give some instructions in the languages to the Lady, his daughter.
עמוד 401 - I myself could sooner imitate than blame those innocent relentings of nature, so that they spring from tenderness only and humanity, not from an implacable sorrow. The tears of a family may flow together like those little drops that compact the rainbow, and if they be placed with the same advantage towards Heaven as those are to the sun, they too have their splendour...
עמוד 391 - I think I have not told you that, on our Bill of Subsidy, the Lord Lucas made a fervent bold Speech against our Prodigality in giving, and the weak Looseness of the Government, the King being present; and the Lord Clare another to persuade the King that he ought not to be present. But all this had little Encouragement, not being seconded. Copys going about every where, one of them was brought into the Lords' House, and Lord Lucas was asked whether it was his.
