There is the western gate, Luke Havergal, There are the crimson leaves upon the wall. Go, for the winds are tearing them away, — Nor think to riddle the dead words they say, Nor any more to feel them...
Page 331 - The bill requires us to control the legislature of Georgia, and to restrain the exertion of its physical force. The propriety of such an interposition by the court may be well questioned. It savors too much of the exercise of political power to be within the proper province of the judicial department.
Page 576 - And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion : and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
