Story of Rome by Mary Macgregor

Verginius left his beautiful young daughter Verginia in the care of her nurse. "A she-wolf, coming to the edge of the river to drink, heard their cries. " "When she saw Horatius wearing on his shoulders the cloak of her betrothed, she broke into bitter sobs."
She carried in her arms nine books. " O my mother, thou hast saved Rome, but thou hast lost thy son. " "Seated in chairs of ivory, sat a number of strange, venerable old men. "
The youth laid the arms he had taken from his foe at his father's feet. The armour of Pyrrhus was richer and more beautiful than that of his soldiers. "I carry here peace and war, choose men of Carthage, which ye will. "
"We are beaten, O Romans, in a great battle, our army is destroyed. " A messenger was seen spurring his horse toward the city. His progress was as that of a king.
The city was given to the flames. "Here it would be possible, he thought, to hold the enemy at bay. " Jugurtha came to the tent of his father-in-law unarmed.
Gaius Marius sitting in exile among the ruins of Carthage. Lists of those who were doomed were hung up in the Forum. The following morning Cicero made another speech against Catiline.
"Looking down upon the stream, he stood awhile deep in thought. " " Here, sheltered by steep cliffs, he sat down to rest. "
