But whether it be species belonging to the same or to a distinct class, which yield their places to other species which have been modified and improved, a few of the sufferers

Himself sprung from the lower middle class, and thoroughly acquainted with the life of the poor and apparently of sufferers

It is likely enough that, rooted in the woods of France and Norway, there were growing trees, when that sufferer
