Pàgina 503 - Neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me; for then peradventure I would have hid myself from him : 14 But it was even thou, my companion, my guide, and mine own familiar friend.
Pàgina 36 - I like, kick him out, or anything; but I stood too much in fear of Vattel to do any such thing; and since he was so friendly to us, said I, give me the letters the agent has brought ; all of which he surrendered sharp ; and I sent an express at once to my Lord A., with a confidential letter to the Governor...
