Page 116 - The Spaniards had an army aboard them, and he had none ; they had more ships than he had, and of higher building and charging ; so that, had he entangled himself with those great and powerful vessels, he liad greatly endangered this kingdom of England.
Page 125 - I know not right: Whom when I asked from what place he came And how he hight, himself he did yclepe The Shepherd of the Ocean by name And said he came far from the main-sea deep.
Page 53 - I do not determine, but true it is, he had gotten the queen's ear in a trice, and she began to be taken with his elocution, and loved to hear his reasons to her demands, and the truth is, she took him for a kind of oracle, which nettled them all...
