" " Thou canst not mend that shot, Locksley," said the Prince,...
Strana 192 - He spoke, and awful bends his sable brows, Shakes his ambrosial curls, and gives the nod, The stamp of fate, and sanction of the god : High Heaven with trembling the dread signal took, And all Olympus to the centre shook.

Strana 482 - Thou canst not mend that shot, Locksley," said the Prince, with an insulting smile. " I will notch his shaft for him, however," replied Locksley. And letting fly his arrow with a little more precaution than \\ before, it lighted right upon that of his competitor, which it M split to shivers.

Strana 482 - I am content to try my fortune ; on condition that when I have shot two shafts at yonder mark of Hubert's, he shall be bound to shoot one at that which I shall propose." " That is but fair," answered Prince John, " and it shall not be refused thee.
Strana 480 - The diminished list of competitors for silvan fame still amounted to eight. Prince John stepped from his royal seat to view more nearly the persons of these chosen yeomen, several of whom wore the royal livery.
