Pahina 76 - Then entered the twins the handsomest, the best dressed, the most distinguishedlooking pair of young fellows the West had ever seen. One was a little fairer than the other, but otherwise they were exact duplicates. CHAPTER VI. Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry. Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar.
Pahina 32 - To all intents and purposes Roxy was as white as anybody, but the one-sixteenth of her which was black outvoted the other fifteen parts and made her a negro.
Pahina 302 - The real heir suddenly found himself rich and free, but in a most embarrassing situation. He could neither read nor write, and his speech was the basest dialect of the negro quarter. His gait, his attitudes, his gestures, his bearing, his laugh all were vulgar and uncouth; his manners were the manners of a slave. Money and fine clothes could not mend these defects or cover them up ; they only made them the more glaring and the more pathetic. The poor fellow could not endure the terrors of the...
Pahina 189 - My great-great-great-gran'father en yo' great-great-great-great-gran'father was Ole Cap'n John Smith, de highest blood dat Ole Virginny ever turned out, en his great-great-gran'mother, or somers along back dah, was Pocahontas de Injun queen, en her husbun' was a nigger king outen Africa en yit here you is, a slinkin' outen a duel en disgracin' our whole line like a ornery lowdown hound!
Pahina 17 - Calendar. THE SCENE of this chronicle is the town of Dawson's Landing, on the Missouri side of the Mississippi, half a day's journey, per steamboat, below St. Louis. In 1830 it was a snug little collection of modest one- and two-story frame dwellings whose whitewashed exteriors were almost concealed from sight by climbing tangles of rose vines, honeysuckles and morning-glories.
Pahina 18 - ... terra-cotta pots in which grew a breed of geranium whose spread of intensely red blossoms accented the prevailing pink tint of the rose-clad house-front like an explosion of flame. When there was room on the ledge outside of the pots and boxes for a cat, the cat was there in sunny weather stretched at full length, asleep and blissful, with her furry belly to the sun and a paw curved over her nose.
Pahina 27 - Adam was but human this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple's sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent ; then he would have eaten the serpent.
Pahina 41 - He knew, himself, that he had done a noble and gracious thing, and was privately well pleased with his magnanimity ; and that night he set the incident down in his diary, so that his son might read it in after years, and be thereby moved to deeds of gentleness and humanity himself.
Pahina 125 - What's the matter with you? You look as meek as a nigger," he felt as secret murderers are said to feel when the accuser says, "Thou art the man!" Tom said he was not well, and left the table. His ostensible "aunt's" solicitudes and endearments were become a terror to him, and he avoided them. And all the time, hatred of his ostensible "uncle" was steadily growing in his heart; for he said to himself, "He is white; and I am his chattel, his property, his goods, and he can sell me, just as he could...
