Page 322 - Long time the barge had danced along the deep, And on its glassy bosom seem'd to sleep ; But now a glittering isle arose in view ', Bounded with hillocks of a verdant hue : Fresh groves and roseate bowers appear'd above (Fit haunts, be sure, of pleasure and of love) ; And, higher still, a thousand...
Page 243 - Take a goat's horn and write the names of the seven sleepers thereon, making a knife -haft of it. The writing should begin at the blade and these are their names: Anaxeimeys, Malchus, Marsianus, Denys, Thon, Serapion, Constantynn. When the names are inscribed, lay the knife under the sick man's head unknown to him, and he will sleep '.
Page 316 - Let not a man be querulous even though in pain ; let him not injure another in deed or in thought ; let him not even utter a word, by which his fellow creature may suffer uneasiness; since that will obstruct his own progress to future beatitude.
Page 220 - The following passage from a letter of Bishop Lee, then President of Wales, to Cromwell, throws light on some aspects of Welsh life : " I have been lately informed that the king wished to make Wales shire ground, and to have justices of the peace and of gaol delivery as in England.
