See ante, iii. 248. See ante, iv. 295, where Boswell asked Johnson 'if he would not have done more good if he had been more gentle. JOHNSON. 'No, Sir; I have done more good as I am. Obscenity and impiety have always been repressed in my company. 'Mr.

Every knife in all his band was whetted for that particular scalp. And now again, when Indian blood had been fired by the insult to the son of White Wolf, he stepped forward to interpose between his people and the fury of the Great Father's man. He had repressed, not incited the wrath of his brothers, but the agent in authority ruled otherwise and demanded his surrender.

It seemed to her like the effort of a strong man to rid himself of an overmastering feeling a feeling deep within him that struggled forever upward and would not be repressed.

It is said that numbers of their children invariably perish in very early infancy from the effects of their wandering life; and as the difficulty of procuring food increases, so must their wandering habits increase; and hence the population, without any apparent deaths from famine, is repressed in a manner extremely sudden compared to what happens in civilized countries, where the father, though in adding to his labour he may injure himself, does not destroy his offspring.

In his previous visits to Horsham Manor Jack had, at no little cost, repressed his speech into accord with my teachings, and Jerry was very fond of him. They fished, swam and sparred by day, and in the evenings Jack told stories of hunting in foreign countries to which Jerry listened wide-eyed. But now, it seemed, his visit had a purport.
