Ages ago there were large pine forests in the northern part of Germany. Amber is the hardened gum of a pine tree. After a storm great quantities are found in the seaweed that has been washed on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea. Insects and pieces of the cones are sometimes found in the amber. It is used for making beads, necklaces, earrings, mouthpieces of pipes, and is burned for perfume.

282 Dictation

-Pope.

"We meet," said Penn, "on the broad pathway of good faith and good will. No advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. The friendship between you and me I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man's body were to be divided into two parts; we are all one flesh and blood."

288-Dictation

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,

And fired the shot heard round the world.
-Emerson.

If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms, never-never-never. -William Pitt.
