i'm not sure about the first line. "Therefore, at last we (made/reached) land - more than we had hoped for". The second line's ok i think: "and we purify ourselves for Jupiter and light the altars with our offerings,"
I'd be much obliged if anyone were willing to help me with a few sentences from a text of the seven kings of Rome. It's a very, very much summarized version of Livy's text on the subject, and does occasionally prove a tad challenging for a student who's only had Latin three-four hours a week two years now. :)

I recently purchased Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar. I have noticed that on Textkit there exists Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar. Is one better than the other? I have looked through the first fifty pages of each, and they appear to be roughly similar.
If you all think A&G's book is superior I am not against buying that one, too.
