But he shall stay in the land and be shriven and keep all that is his. The enormous, in fact inconceivable magnitude of the numbers expressive of the chance of very rare combinations, such as those in question, has such a bewildering effect upon the mind that one may be sometimes apt to confound the impossible with the higher degrees of the merely mathematically improbable. Is it then perfectly arbitrary what series or class of instances we select by which to judge? The simple fact is that any rational attempt to decide between chance and design as agencies must be confined to the case of finite intelligences. [Illustration] CHAPTER VII. With a grace and privilege for ten years, that it be not printed either with commentaries or without, and the other particulars which are contained in the privilege itself.

If it were on the firm land, it would rank as one of the first cities in Europe for magnificence, size, and beauty; as it is, it is without a rival. The gates flew open, the chaise entered, and drove down the long avenue of trees that leads up to the front of this fine old mansion. What first?—Boldness: what second and third?—Boldness.
