You must put a stop to it when you reach England, and expose his treachery to the whole country." Ormond shook his head slowly and said: "I cannot imagine Jimmy Spence a traitor.

Winnemac, Five Medals, and three other hostile chiefs, bearing the flag under which they were to gain admittance to the fort to carry out their treacherous intentions, were surprised by suddenly meeting at the gate, Oliver and his companions.

"I couldn't paint it lurider than it is. But you'll have to find out for yourself. It won't be so bad while you're a novelty. Don't say I haven't warned you.

In 1794, a beautiful series of antiquities, consisting of a great number of imperial medals, of nations, cities, and kings, of all sizes, in gold, silver, and bronze, together with little painted figures, busts, instruments of sacrifices, &c. arrived here from Holland. In 1796, the department of medals was also enriched by several articles from the Garde-Meuble or Jewel-Office.
