Page 253 - I know the night is near at hand : The mists lie low on hill and bay, The Autumn sheaves are dewless, dry ; But I have had the day. Yes, I have had, dear Lord, the day; When at thy call I have the night, Brief be the twilight as I pass From light to dark, from dark to light.
Page 661 - If we compare from a social point of view the importance of gonorrhea with that of syphilis, gonorrhea is to syphilis as 100 is to one, not only from the standpoint of the number of persons attacked, but also from the standpoint of the gravity of the lesions and their perpetuity.
