Strona 201 - And the bow shall be in the cloud, and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Strona 140 - That Mr. Humphry Davy be engaged in the service of the Royal Institution, in the capacity of Assistant Lecturer in Chemistry, Director of the Chemical Laboratory, and Assistant Editor of the Journals of the Institution ; and that he be allowed to occupy a room in the house, and be furnished with coals and candles, and that he be paid a salary of 100 guineas per annum.
