94. oldal - Of witches' spells, of warriors' arms ; Of patriot battles, won of old By Wallace wight and Bruce the bold ; Of later fields of feud and fight, When, pouring from their Highland height, The Scottish clans, in, headlong sway, Had swept the scarlet ranks away. While...
518. oldal - Coke, when argument and evidence failed him, insulted the defendant by applying to him the term ' thou' : — "All that Lord Cobham did was at thy instigation, thou viper ! for I thou thee, thou traitor.
