References in classic literature ?
When the merchant saw that the genius was determined to cut off his head, he said: "One word more, I entreat you.
I give you my word of honour," answered the merchant, "that I will come back without fail.
I ask you for a year's grace," replied the merchant.
The merchant, having recovered from his fright, mounted his horse and went on his road.
Then he took leave of his father, and set himself in the boat, but before it got far off a wave struck it, and it fell with one side low in the water, so the merchant thought that poor Heinel was lost, and went home very sorrowful, while the dwarf went his way, thinking that at any rate he had had his revenge.
When he came to his father's house, he said he was his son; but the merchant would not believe him, and said he had had but one son, his poor Heinel, who he knew was long since dead: and as he was only dressed like a poor shepherd, he would not even give him anything to eat.
But the merchant said, 'that can never be true; he must be a fine king truly who travels about in a shepherd's frock
The merchant, having seated Father Sergius on the bench under the elm, took on himself police duties and drove the people off very resolutely.
Father Sergius noticed that the merchant seemed to be acting roughly, and in a feeble voice told the attendant that the people should not be driven away.
I am only remonstrating with them,' replied the merchant.
It was not until the year 1766, that the trade regained its old channels; but it was then pursued with much avidity and emulation by individual merchants, and soon transcended its former bounds.
To put an end to these sordid and ruinous contentions, several of the principal merchants of Montreal entered into a partnership in the winter of 1783, which was augmented by amalgamation with a rival company in 1787.
