It was not for want of possible successors in his own house that they had cried out for a king. If this be not the bearing of the allusion to his sons, it is difficult to explain; and this obvious explanation would never have been overlooked if Samuel had not been idealised into a faultless saint. The dash of human infirmity and fatherly blindness gives reality to the picture.

On his return he published, in 1838, his report on the Prussian system. Subsequently Dr. McGuffey labored in Ohio with Samuel Lewis and other public-spirited men for the passage of the general school law under which the common schools of Ohio were first organized. He carried to Virginia the same zeal for the education of all the children of the state to prepare them for the duties of life.

And that supplied Samuel Rutherford with an excellent text for a sermon he was continually preaching in every utterance of his the constant danger we all lie under as long as we are in this life. Danger from sin, and, in its own still subtler way, as much danger from grace; danger from want, and danger from fulness; danger from our weakness, and danger from our strength.

"You're not going back on the ladder by which you have climbed, are you, Samuel?" queried Boswell, earnestly. "The wha-a-t?" cried the Doctor, angrily. "The ladder on which I climbed? You? Great heavens! That it should come to this! . . . Leave the room instantly! Ladder! By all that is beautiful the ladder upon which I, Samuel Johnson, the tallest person in letters, have climbed! Go!

The other woman replied in kind and Samuel made out that there was some kind of a quarrel, and that some of the party wanted to interfere, and that others wanted it to go on.

PRUD. Who are they that must be saved? JOSEPH. Those that accept of His salvation. PRUD. Good boy, Joseph; thy mother has taught thee well, and thou hast hearkened to what she hath said unto thee. Then said Prudence to Samuel, who was the eldest but one, PRUD. Come, Samuel, are you willing that I should catechise you also? SAMUEL. Yes, forsooth, if you please. PRUD. What is Heaven?

A couple of letters addressed there showing the way in which an old widow expresses herself, when after great labour she has delivered herself of an epistle, may not prove undiverting. The point is the amount she can obtain from her children. 'Samuel Mr. Hussey Esq. Sir I hope you will be good enough to speak to Downing to give me Justice.

The depth and tenderness of his wild affections: the quantity of sympathy he had with things, the quantity of insight he would yet get into the heart of things, the mastery he would yet get over things: this was his hypochondria. The man's misery, as man's misery always does, came of his greatness. Samuel Johnson too is that kind of man.

Hancock, the first signer of the Declaration of Independence, served his apprenticeship with a merchant. Samuel Adams, afterward governor of Massachusetts, was a small tradesman and a tax-gatherer. General Warren was a physician, General Lincoln a farmer, and General Knox a bookbinder.

The precipitating manner in which Captain Ahab had quitted the Samuel Enderby of London, had not been unattended with some small violence to his own person. He had lighted with such energy upon a thwart of his boat that his ivory leg had received a half-splintering shock.
