And if you observe any alteration in the course that they are steering, report the fact to me at once." "Ay, ay, sir!" I answered, and settled myself down comfortably for what I anticipated might be a fairly long wait.

Orla Lehmann, a Minister at the time, came out of the Castle, made his way through the crowd, and shouted again and again, first to one side, then to the other: "He has signed! He has signed!" He did not say: "The King." The people now endured seven weeks of uninterrupted change and kaleidoscopic alteration of the political situation.

The accustomed coach life began again, now, and by midnight it almost seemed as if we never had been out of our snuggery among the mail sacks at all. We had made one alteration, however. We had provided enough bread, boiled ham and hard boiled eggs to last double the six hundred miles of staging we had still to do.

But to let pass nature in general, and to reason of things particular according to their own particular natures; how absurd and ridiculous is it, first to say that all parts of the whole are, by their proper natural constitution, subject to alteration; and then when any such thing doth happen, as when one doth fall sick and dieth, to take on and wonder as though some strange thing had happened?

Skilful combinations of appliances based on the history of those forces which are within our power, which 'we can deal with by way of alteration, forces 'from which the mind suffereth, which have operation on it, so potent that 'they can almost change the stamp of nature, that they can make indeed, 'another nature, these are the engines, this is the machinery which the scientific state will employ for its ends.
