It is very similar to Fig. 73, but the padding under the hair-net is not so marked, also the coronet of linen is splayed out at the top — less of a band. The colouring of this figure...
Page 8 - ... is one of the most interesting episodes in the history of the conquest. It was a critical moment for the Europeans. If they had failed to agree, and had turned their arms against one another, those who would have escaped alive would have been at the mercy of the Indians, who would at once have rallied their forces to repel the invaders.

Amen.

Page 39 - Prior a great noble, ruling over what was far better than a noble's fortress — a well-ordered, peaceful community, which on the one side kept up a perpetual protest against the rude vices of the age, and on the other side shewed to the kings, nobles, and prelates who thronged our city, the pattern of an organization for the conduct of life and business which could hardly have been found elsewhere in medieval times.
Page 62 - Christmas — a solemn banquet that the prior and convent did use at that time of the year only, when their banquet was of figs and raisins, ale and cakes ; and thereof no superfluity or excess, but a scholastical and moderate congratulation amongst themselves.
