Chilton's application for my sanction to your engagement I should say, perhaps, to your reciprocal attachment.

How much of that which is, wisely or well? In the very centre and chief garden of Europe where the two forms of parent Christianity have had their fortresses where the noble Catholics of the Forest Cantons, and the noble Protestants of the Vaudois valleys, have maintained, for dateless ages, their faiths and liberties there the unchecked Alpine rivers yet run wild in devastation; and the marshes, which a few hundred men could redeem with a year's labour, still blast their helpless inhabitants into fevered idiotism.

To whom should a daughter give from her superfluities but to a parent? from whom should a parent receive, but from a child, who can never repay his love? Ah, this is nothing; but you you who have never crossed her lightest whim do not you destroy all the hopes of happiness your Florence can ever form."

His own parent was drowned at sea when he was a tiny baby, and his mother married again; so he was known all over the place as Hi Allen instead of Hi Greenfield, which was his real name.

The boy looked somewhat surprised at this request, for Peace had been very slow in accepting his friendly advances, though he had showered her with every possible attention ever since the day of the double tragedy in their breakfast room, owing to certain forceful remarks made by his irate parent.

If it is in your power to be the parent of beautiful, healthy, moral and talented children instead of diseased and depraved, is it not your imperious duty then, to impart to them that physical power, moral perfection, and intellectual capability, which shall ennoble their lives and make them good people and good citizens?

There were in Germany about one hundred central camps and perhaps ten thousand or more so-called working camps, in summer time, throughout the country. Some of the British prisoners were put to work on the sewage farm of Berlin but we succeeded in getting them sent back to their parent camp. The prisoners of war were often accused of various breaches of discipline and crimes.
