Страница 343 - And he look'd at her and said, " Bring the dress and put it on her, That she wore when she was wed.
Страница 451 - We must call upon you again for a Black Dog, between a Grey-hound and a Spaniel, no white about him, onely a streak on his Brest, and Tayl a little bobbed. It is His Majesties own Dog, and doubtless was stoln, for the Dog was not born nor bred in England, and would never forsake his Master. Whosoever findes him may acquaint any at, Whitehal, for the Dog was better known at Court than those who stole...
Страница 14 - He could win money at cards from her husband, or he could teach her son, Jamie, who had just left school, a fine new game with the lock of a door and one of his curious pronged hooks.
