And let these brutal natures go on in the exercise of their favourite discipline ! There...
157 ページ - I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things and before Jesus Christ, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession, that thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ...

They might deport themselves as they would ; what was that...
