There is no way of writing well and also of writing easily. Labor omnia vincit improbus. Such should be the chosen motto of every labourer, and it may be that labour, if adequately enduring, may suffice at last to produce even some not untrue resemblance of the Rev. Francis Arabin. Of his doings in the world, and of the sort of fame which he has achieved, enough has already been said.

On the general subject of drinking, however, I do not mean positively to take the other side. I am dubius, non improbus. In the evening, Sir Allan informed us that it was the custom of his house to have prayers every Sunday; and Miss M'Lean read the evening service, in which we all joined.

But the labor improbus knocks the stuffing out of all difficulties, as you put it in your neat American way. I dare say I shall survive. If I do not, the directions for my epitaph are, "Here lies the body of Anne Patoff's brother-in-law." If you could see me, you would appreciate the justice of the inscription.

This undertaking was executed with ardor, but did not immediately succeed our descent was not skilfully planned the water did not run, the earth falling in and stopping up the furrow; yet, though all went contrary, nothing discouraged us, 'omnia vincit labor improbus'. We made the bason deeper, to give the water a more sensible descent; we cut the bottom of a box into narrow planks; increased the channel from the walnut tree to our willow and laying a row flat at the bottom, set two others inclining towards each other, so as to form a triangular channel; we formed a kind of grating with small sticks at the end next the walnut tree, to prevent the earth and stones from stopping it up, and having carefully covered our work with well trodden earth, in a transport of hope and fear attended the hour of watering.

The next simile exemplifies the use of hyperbole at its happiest, an ornament, by the way, to which Statius is specially prone. It is a very short one. It compares an infant to the babe Apollo crawling on the shore of Delos: "Talis per litora reptans Improbus Ortygiae latus inclinabat Apollo." This is delightful.

But might I, fed with silent meditation, Assoiled live from that fiend Occupation Improbus labor, which my spirits hath broke I'd drink of time's rich cup, and never surfeit Fling in more days than went to make the gem That crowned the white top of Methusalem Yea on my weak neck take, and never forfeit, Like Atlas bearing up the dainty sky, The heaven-sweet burthen of eternity.

I then read Ogden's second and ninth Sermons on Prayer, which, with their other distinguished excellence, have the merit of being short. Dr.

Labor omnia vincit Improbus. Incessant pains, The end obtains. And so did I. Which made my reading the more acceptable to my master.

It was now harder for me to read; than it was, before, to understand, when read. But Labor omnia vincit Improbus. Incessant pains, The end obtains. And so, did I: which made my reading the more acceptable to my Master. He, on the other hand, perceiving with what earnest desire, I pursued learning, gave me not only all the encouragement, but all the help he could.
