Page 25 - I received your Letter with indignation and scorn, and return you this answer, that I cannot but wonder whence you should gather any hopes from me, that I should, like you, prove...
Page 37 - ... it is here that the swarthy daughters of Cadmus may hang their trophies on high ; for when all the pride of the chisel and the pomp of heraldry yield to the silent touches of time, a single line, a half-worn-out inscription, remain faithful to their trust.
