Master Potts then rose in his stirrups, and calling for silence, addressed the assemblage.

These two, instead of dismissing him as a snappish airman continually at variance with the builder, took his inventions seriously and strove to meet his requirements.

However that may be, certainly to all races of men has come this revelation; only the degree in which they have felt its force has differed immensely.
