Page xiii - Whatever is great, desirable, or tremendous, is comprised in the name of the Supreme Being. Omnipotence cannot be exalted; Infinity cannot be amplified; Perfection cannot be improved.
Page ix - But, Sir, I gave a receipt for a hundred.' My astonishment, however was now over, and 1 found that he received only thirteen pounds, because the rest had been advanced for his family; this was a tender point, and I found means immediately to divert him from it.
