Trang 409 - House, and observing this posture, I told him I thought it did give us an opportunity and advantage to attempt upon the Enemy. To which he immediately replied, That he had thought to have said the same thing to me. So that it pleased the Lord to set this apprehension upon both of our hearts, at the same instant. We called for Colonel Monk, and showed him the thing : and coming to bur quarters at night, and demonstrating our apprehensions to some of the Colonels, they also cheerfully concurred.
Trang 409 - I may speak it without partiality, both your chief commanders and others in their several places, and soldiers also, were acted with as much courage as ever hath been seen in any action since this war. I know they look not to be named, and therefore I forbear particulars.
Trang 404 - ... chafings and tumblings of the big blue German Ocean. Seaward St. Abb's Head, of whinstone, bounds your horizon to the east, not very far off; west, close by, is the deep bay and fishy little village of Belhaven ; the gloomy Bass and other rock-islets, and farther the Hills of Fife, and foreshadows of the Highlands, are visible as you look seaward. From the bottom of Belhaven bay to that of the next sea-bight St. Abb's-ward, the Town and its environs form a peninsula. Along the base of which peninsula,...
Trang 409 - Hills; labouring to make a perfect interposition between us and Berwick.

Trang 471 - And tinged them with a lustre proud, Like that which streaks a thunder-cloud. Such dusky grandeur clothed the height, Where the huge castle holds its state, And all the steep slope down Whose ridgy back heaves to the sky, Piled deep and massy, close and high, Mine own romantic town ! But northward far, with purer blaze, On Ochil mountains fell the rays, And as each heathy top they kissed, It gleamed a purple amethyst.
Trang 449 - Our Hill was garnished on the top, towards the south and east, with our mounted cannon ; well near to the number of forty, great and small. Our regiments lay on the sides of the Hill, almost round about: the place was not a mile in circle; a pretty round, rising in a declivity, without steepness, to the height of a bow-shot; on the top, somewhat plain; about a quarter of a mile in length; and as much in breadth; as I remember, capable of tents for forty thousand men.
Trang 471 - With gloomy splendour red ; For on the smoke-wreaths, huge and slow, That round her sable turrets flow, The morning beams were shed, And tinged them with a lustre proud, Like that which streaks a thunder-cloud. Such dusky grandeur clothed the height Where the huge castle holds its state, And all the steep slope down, Whose ridgy back heaves to the sky, Piled deep and massy, close and high, Mine own romantic town!
Trang 409 - The best of the enemy's horse being broken through and through in less than an hour's dispute, their whole army being put into confusion, it became a total rout ; our men having the chase and execution of them near eight miles.
Trang 409 - Our first foot, after they had discharged their duty, being overpowered with the enemy, received some repulse, which they soon recovered. 1'or my own regiment, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Gofi'e, and my Major, White, did come seasonably in ; and, at the push of pike, did repel the stoutest regiment the enemy had there, merely with the courage the Lord was pleased to give.
Trang 409 - That because of their numbers, because of their advantages, because of their confidence, because of our weakness, because of our strait, we were in the Mount, and in the Mount the Lord would be seen; and that He would find out a way of deliverance and salvation for us: - and indeed we had our consolations and our hopes.
