The vials, with various other connected circumstances (such as those in the notes page 28, 42, and 43 of the Little Book,) must likewise take date from the said period, and not from the commencement of the restricted regency, and let it be remembered he is still the same individual,-- one of the seven mountains (figuratively so, being higli, raised up, or exalted,) and the first of Daniel's two kings.
