Side 182 - In consequence of this address, the bells were immediately stopped from tolling. The expedience of this measure was obvious; as they had before been almost constantly ringing the whole day, so as to terrify those in health, and drive the sick, as far as the influence of imagination could produce that effect, to their graves.
Side 251 - Prometheus, which feems indeed to have been invented by phyficians in thofe ancient times, when all things were clothed in hieroglyphic, or in fable. Prometheus was painted as ftealing fire from heaven, which might well reprefent the inflammable fpirit produced by fermentation ; which may be faid to animate or enliven the man of clay : whence the conquefts of Bacchus, as well as the temporary mirth and noife of his devotees.

Side 203 - When Richmond was told, that if he did not go on he would in a short time be frozen to death, he answered, that he desired nothing but to lie down and die...
Side 177 - ... parents forsaking their only children — children ungratefully flying from their parents, and resigning them to chance, often without an enquiry after their health or safety — masters hurrying off their faithful servants to Bushhill, even on suspicion of the fever, and that at a time, when, like Tartarus, it was open to every visitant, but never returned any — servants abandoning tender and humane masters, who only wanted a little care to restore them to health and usefulness — who, I...
