This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Sicily and Sardinia being lost worried the man of mighty spirit: for that both Sicily had been given up with too speedy a despair, and that...
