I scarce know how to put my story into words that shall be a credible
picture of my state of mind; but I was in these days literally able to find a joy in the extraordinary flight of heroism the occasion demanded of me.
Seems it credible
that by three such thin threads the great Leviathan was suspended like the big weight to an eight day clock.
There were credible
rumors, also, of a hemstitched pocket-handkerchief; and report even went so far as to state that Miss Ophelia had one pocket-handkerchief with lace all around it,--it was even added that it was worked in the corners; but this latter point was never satisfactorily ascertained, and remains, in fact, unsettled to this day.
Every detail of the damaging circumstances that occurred in the graveyard upon that morning which all present remembered so well was brought out by credible
witnesses, but none of them were cross- examined by Potter's lawyer.
Ham Peggotty, who went to the national school, and was a very dragon at his catechism, and who may therefore be regarded as a credible
witness, reported next day, that happening to peep in at the parlour-door an hour after this, he was instantly descried by Miss Betsey, then walking to and fro in a state of agitation, and pounced upon before he could make his escape.
But not only is he a darling and alive and credible
but his creator has also managed to invest everybody else in the book with the same kind of life.
Neither can it seem credible
that a man in a distant city may be located as readily as though he were close at hand.
In what words shall I describe this dread exploit, by what language shall I make it credible
to ages to come, what eulogies are there unmeet for thee, though they be hyperboles piled on hyperboles
The story was so fantastic and incredible, the telling so credible
To me it is quite credible
that the Martians may be descended from beings not unlike ourselves, by a gradual development of brain and hands (the latter giving rise to the two bunches of delicate tentacles at last) at the expense of the rest of the body.
To those who have merely touched at Nukuheva Bay, without visiting other portions of the island, it would hardly appear credible
the diversities presented between the various small clans inhabiting so diminutive a spot.
Upon my word, if the legend were not one which I heard on my grandmother's knee, and which had established its place among things credible
before my childish judgment could analyze its probability, I question whether I should have the face to tell it now.
