Strana 99 - English words, — probably identical with those in the district from which the ancestral people came. This Glossary is supposed to have been made out about the middle of last century, but the people retained their peculiar manners and customs for at least 75 years after, or down to the end of the first quarter of the present century. We have mentioned that the dialect of Forth and Bargy was referred to by Stannihurst 300 years ago ; that is to say, four centuries after their original settlement...
Strana 106 - Here thou, great ANNA ! whom three realms obey, Dost sometimes counsel take — and sometimes tea.
Strana 107 - But mine the sorrow, mine the fault, And well my life shall pay; I'll seek the solitude he sought, And stretch me where he lay. And there, forlorn, despairing, hid, I'll lay me down and die: 'Twas so for me that Edwin did, And so for him will I.

Strana 68 - Lime, belongs to a Teutonic series "connected with Ic. and Sw. Linda, a band, and AS lithe, " pliant. . . . The name has evidently been applied to " the inner bark, or bast, of the tree so much used in the " North for cordage. In the Herbals, and all old works " after Chaucer's time, it is spelt Lyne or Line, as in the " ballad of Robin Hood and Guy of Gisborne, where it " rhymes to ' thine,' " " Now tell me thy name, good fellow...
Strana 91 - Anglesea alone but a considerable piece of mainland is omitted, by his line drawn from one of these stations to the other. Ah ! But some one says, What about Tacitus ? True, Tacitus mentions Anglesea ; but you know he was blowing his father-in-law's trumpet; he was praising Agricola, not writing geography. This is by no means the only case in which I have found the geography of Tacitus at fault. He had to carry the Roman soldiers to...
