He half-sprawled on the slippery deck, regained his balance, and stood still and looked at the white-god who had treated him so cavalierly.

The upper stories of some of the old houses project over the lower ones, and in the High Street they jut quite across the pavements, and rest upon columns, making piazzas or covered ways along the street.

Their harness had shifted, their tunics were askew, and they were bunched so closely ...

These gullies being in compact clay, the water has but little power of erosion, so they are worn deep but narrow. Some fragments ...
