Seite 234 - I have, upon mature deliberation1 on the affair of the English, determined upon, namely, that the temples of the idols in that nation ought not to be destroyed ; but let the idols that are in them...
Seite 198 - when from Speymouth (through Strathspey, Badenoch, and Lochaber) to Lorn there was but one School, viz., at Ruthven, in Badenoch, and it was much to find in a Parish three persons that could read or write.
Seite 159 - the graceful mien and manly looks/' which our popular Scotch song has justly attributed to that character. He had his Tartan plaid thrown about him, a large blue bonnet with a knot of black...
Seite 235 - ... as that, on the day of the dedication, or the nativities of the holy martyrs, whose relics are there deposited, they may build themselves huts of the boughs of trees, about those churches which have been turned to that use from temples...
