Pāgina 500 - March hack ham, comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb. A bushel of March dust is worth a king's ransom. March grass never did good. A windy March and a rainy April make a beautiful May.
Pāgina 41 - ... originally well made, and only refuses to work when worn out with age ; it is equally active in all climates, and will do work of any kind ; it is a water-pumper, a miner, a sailor, a cottonspinner, a weaver, a blacksmith, a miller, &c.
