I carry not out the Treasure of the Nation, which is never to return: but what I bring from Italy, I spend in England : Here it remains, and here it circulates ; for if the Coyn be good, it will pass from one hand to another. I Trade both with the Living and the Dead, for the enrichment of our Native Language.
Strana 19 - And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
