A solisism is reguarded by gramarians as a
much grater offense than each of the others: by
cause it betraies a grater ignorence of the principals of the language. Retorickally considerd it
is denied a lesser trespas, for the retorishian and
gramarian estimates tho magnitude of erors by
difrent standards, the first enquiring onely how
far any.error millitaits against the grate purpose
of his art, perswasron, the last how far it betraies
an ignorence of .the principals of gramer. Hence

The ancients had no other method of regulating
their course than by observing the sun and stars.
Their navigation was of consequence uncertain
and timid. They durst seldom quit sight of land,
but crept along the coast, exposed to all the
dangers and retarded by all the obstructions
unavoidable in holding such an awkward course.
An incredible length of time was requisite for
performing voyages which are now finished in a
short space. Even in the mildest climates and
in seas the least tempestuous, it was only during
the summer months that the ancients ventured out
of their harbours. The remainder of the year was

William ordered a thousand horsemen to advance and to flee immediately. The sight of this
pretended rout caused the Saxons to lose their
coolness,: all ran to the pursuit, their axes hanging
from their necks. At a certain point, a body of
troops, designedly posted, joined the fugitives, who
turned, and the English surprised in their disorder
were assailed on all sides by blows of lance and
sword, from which they could hot defend themselves, having both hands occupied in wielding
their huge axes. When they had lost their ranks
the barriers of the redoubts were broken down :
horsemen and footmen made their way i n : but
the fight was still lively, pell-mell, body to body.

Tu tibi liber homo et regis conviva videris:
Captum te nidore suag putat ille culinae:
Nee male conjectat. Quis enim tarn nudus, ut ilium
Bis ferat, Etruscum puero si contigit aurum,
Vel nodus tantum et signum de paupere loro ? '
Spes bene coanandi vos decipit. " Ecce, dabit jam
Semesum leporem atque aliquid de clunibus apri:
Ad nos jam veniet minor altilis." Inde parato
Intactoque omnes et stricto pane tacetis.
Ille sapit, qui te sic utitur. Omnia ferre
Si potes, et debes. Pulsandum vertice raso
Prtebebis quandoque caput, nee dura timebis
Flagra pati, his epulis et tali dignus amico.
Sed quae praclara et prospera, tantum
Ut rebus laetis par sit mensura malorum ?
Hujus, qui trahitur, prtetextam sumero mavis,

Nullas Germanorum populis urbes habitari satis

Satisquo constabat, soavisso quosdam in conjuges
