Seite 36 - HOW doth the little busy bee Improve each shining hour, And gather honey all the day From every opening flower...
Seite 101 - ... reach were folios of the gravest cast. I could understand very little that I read in them, and the old dark print and the length of the lines made my eyes ache. When I had almost resolved to give up the search as fruitless, I perceived a volume lying in an obscure corner of the room. I opened it. It was a charming print; the letters were almost as large as the type of the family Bible. In the first page I looked into I saw the name of my favourite Ishmael, whose face I knew so well from the tapestry,...
Seite 103 - I used to read the history of Ishmael, and then go and look at him in the tapestry, and then read his history again.

Seite 106 - I believe I was ; for I tried to explain the reason of my request, but it was in such an incoherent manner, that she could not at all comprehend what I was talking about. The next day a physician was sent for, and he discovered, by several questions that he put to me, that I had read myself into a fever. He gave me medicines, and ordered me to be kept very quiet, and said, he hoped in a few days I should be very well ; but as it was a new case to him, he never having attended a little Mahometan before...
