Strona 69 - The floors, says he, are commonly of clay, strewed with rushes; under which lies, unmolested, an ancient collection of beer, grease, fragments, bones, spittle, excrements of dogs and cats, and every thing that is nasty.
Strona 172 - ... religion he pleased, and might endeavour to draw others to it by the force of argument, and by amicable and modest ways, but without bitterness against those of other opinions ; but that he ought to use no other force but that of persuasion ; and was neither to mix with it reproaches nor violence ; and such as did otherwise were to be condemned to banishment or slavery.
