A reaching thought will search his deepest wits, And cast with cunning for the time to come : For evils are apt to happen every day — But whither wends my beauteous Abigail ? Enter Abigail, the yew's daughter.
Page 88 - And in his house heap pearl like pebble-stones ; Receive them free, and sell them by the weight ; Bags of fiery opals, sapphires, amethysts, Jacinths, hard topaz, grass-green emeralds, Beauteous rubies, sparkling diamonds, And seld-seen* costly stones of so great price...
