Page 55 - O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
Page 39 - THE very morning after I writ you my last, I had the happiness of meeting with my dearest brother. He did not know me at first sight , but I am sure I knew him very well , for he is not in the least altered since I saw him, except grown somewhat broader and fatter, which is incomprehensible after all the fatigues he has endured.
