Nam adjutrix non est, sed insidiatrix, quae mentem ad alium declinarit.
It is an impious and blasphemous construction which some of the popish writers put upon the virgin Mary standing by the cross, that thereby she contributed to the satisfaction he made for sin no less than he did, and so became a joint-mediatrix and co-adjutrix in our salvation.
Mr. Rcynardson made a sixth at table; and he and his co-adjutrix were elaborate in their offices: the one invited the countess to take wine, and filled her glass, as he supposed she would wish: the other took the viscount as her charge, and dis - tinguished him, in a way to which few young men are insensible.
