Strana 305 - A SKETCH of the DENOMINATIONS INTO WHICH THE CHRISTIAN WORLD is DIVIDED; accompanied with a persuasive to Religious Moderation. To which is...
Strana 48 - tis well, " The joy of meeting pays the pangs of absence, " Else who could bear it ?" When thy lov'd sight shall bless my eyes again, Then I will own I ought not to complain, Since that sweet hour is worth whole years of pain.
