Sample Text
On August 1, 1774, Priestly prepared his first sample of oxygen by heating red mercuric oxide confined in a glass tube filled with mercury. To avoid having to heat the whole apparatus, he used a large burning lens with a diameter of about 12 inches, which allowed him to focus the sun`s rays on the powder inside the tube.As the mercuric oxide decomposed it produced mercury and oxygen, so the gas that formed in the tube was pure oxygen.

On Friday, June 12th, I woke up at six o’clock and no wonder,it was my birthday. But of course I was not allowed to get up at that hour, so I had to control my curiosity until a quarter to seven. Then I could bear it no longer, and went to the dining room, where I received a warm welcome from Moortje (the cat).
Soon after seven I went to Mummy and Daddy and then to the sitting room to undo my presents. The first to greet me was you, possibly the nicest of all. Then on the table there were a bunch of roses, a plant, and some peonies, and more arrived during the day.
I got masses of things from Mummy and Daddy, and was thoroughly spoiled by various friends. Among other things I was given Camera Obscura, a party game, lots of sweets, chocolates, a puzzle, a brooch, Tales and Legends of the Netherlands by Joseph Cohen, Daisy’s Mountain Holiday (a terrific book) and some money. Now I can by The Myths of Greece and Rome – grand!
Then Lies called for me and we went to school. During recess I treated everyone to sweet biscuits, and then we had to go back to our lessons.
Now I must stop. Bye-bye, we’re going to be great pals!
