Thompson and Meserves Purchase

Famous quotes containing the words purchase and/or thompson:

    When thou, poor Excommunicate
    From all the joys of love, shalt see
    The full reward and glorious fate
    Which my strong faith shall purchase me,
    Then curse thine own inconstancy!
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    Above the bayonets, mixed and crossed,
    Men saw a gray, gigantic ghost
    Receding through the battle cloud,
    And heard across the tempest loud
    The death cry of a nation lost!
    —Will Henry Thompson (1848–1918)
