Page 88 - For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
Page 78 - In this em,barassmcnt and distress, the success of this appeal to British munificence, is their sole dependence. The whole amount of their loss is too heavy to be replaced ; and they solicit only such assistance as is calculated to relieve: any contribution therefore, however limited its extent, as it will tend to remove their wants, will have a claim upon their gratitude.

The fire was kindled, and the woman's clothes consumed, but she struggled and got out of the flames, and...
Page 16 - ... Sentences which convey ideas of the most important nature may be written by children, as well as single words. Thus a whole Gospel, either in English or Bengalee, by appropriating a certain part of the day to this exercise, (giving the rest to accounts, &c.) may be written out, and be not only read, but almost engraved on the mind, in a very moderate space of time ; as we have proved hy experience in our schools both in English and Bengalee.
