And ever the earls before them quickly rode, ever the right way that toward the wood lay, where their comrades were well hid. The earls rode to the wood; the Romanish men rode after; the Britons attacked them on their rested steeds, and smote in front, and felled an hundred anon.

The sense of belonging to the Empire had not quite died out even in sixth-century Britain. Roman names continued to be used, not exclusively but freely enough, by Britons. Roman 'culture words' seem to occur in the later British language, and some at least of these may be traceable to the Roman occupation of the island. Roman military terms appear, if scantily.

The peace of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. The people who sat in darkness saw a great light, and they who were in the land and in the shadow of death received light by which came their illumination. Patrick, then, was of the Britons of Alcluaid by origin. Calpurnn was his father's name. He was a noble priest. Potid was his grandfather's name, whose title was a deacon.

The British history informs us, that Mailgon, king of the Britons, and many others, were addicted to this vice; that enormity, however, had entirely ceased for so long a time, that the recollection of it was nearly worn out.

We want to go and see if the great capital of pleasures hasn't some young Chevalier de Valois in store for us, with a carriage, diamonds, an opera-box, and so forth.

"Are Britons so poor and unmanly a race, that even when twenty to one they cannot conquer a foe? I would not believe it of them." "I don't expect it, mother, but it is best to be prepared for whatever may happen." He then told her of the arrangements he had made. "You may be right, Beric, in preparing for the worst, but I will take no part in it.

It is at least possible that, as on the Continent, the kings and courts were almost the only Teutonic element. The Christians found converts, they found patrons, they found persecutors; but they did not find Ancient Britons because they did not look for them; and if they moved among pure Anglo-Saxons they had not the gratification of knowing it.

This morning only did the wild Peninsula look beautiful. But its whiteness was that of a whited sepulchre. Never before had it been so mercilessly cruel. For now was opening the notorious blizzard that should strike down hundreds with frost-bite, and drown in their trenches Turks and Britons alike. It was freezing freezing.

"It must be a strange religion that could thus influence a timid girl," he said to himself.

Besides, my mother was a Briton, strong and firm, and capable of heroic actions.
