Page 371 - I'll tell you what I will do for you — I will give you the little dog Trusty, to be your own dog. You shall feed him, and take care of him, and he shall be your dog; you have saved him a beating; and I'll answer for it you'll be a good master to him. Trusty, Trusty, come here.
Page 101 - I do not like you, Doctor Fell ; The reason why, I cannot tell; But this I know full well, I do not like you, Doctor Fell.
Page 111 - First with nice eye emerging Naiads cull From leathery pods the vegetable wool; With wiry teeth revolving cards release The tangled knots, and smooth the...
