Стр. 11 - A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children : and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. 23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor : but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.
Стр. 28 - ... not rather trace it to circumstances of life, and sleep so degrading as to leave no moral room for their growth? What provision can there be under such conditions of home life, not only for the three essentials of physical life — pure air, pure water, pure food, — but also for the three essentials of spiritual life, 'admiration, hope, and love'?".
Стр. 101 - At harvest-time," said Mr. Craig, " the whole Society used voluntarily to work longer than the time specified,! and I have seen the whole body occasionally, at these seasons, act with such energy and accomplish such great results by their united exertions, that each and all seemed as if fired by a wild enthusiastic determination to achieve some glorious enterprise—and that, too, without any additional stimulant being administered to them in the shape of extra pecuniary reward.
Стр. 46 - That if any of the said allotments shall be found to lie at an inconvenient distance from the residences of the cottagers, it shall be lawful for the vestry, by an order made to that effect, to let such allotment, or any part thereof, for the best rent that can be procured for the same, and to hire in lieu thereof, for the purposes of this Act, land of equal value, more favourably situated.
