3 He hath made pathways, with the Sun to aid him, throughout
darkness that extended pathless.
Mortals who yearn to worship ne'er dishonour, O Mighty God,
who art Immortal.

philosophical importance. They do not affect the substance of the work.
It may be remarked further that several of the dialogues, such as the

Perhaps it will be thought a heinous thing,
That I, a French man, should discover this;
But heaven I call to record of my vows:
It is not hate nor any private wrong,
But love unto my country and the right,
Provokes my tongue, thus lavish in report.
You are the lineal watchman of our peace,
