الصفحة 632 - It was on the day, or rather night, of the 27th of June 1787, between the hours of eleven and twelve, that I wrote the last lines of the last page, in a summer-house in my garden. After laying down my pen I took several turns in a berceau, or covered walk of acacias, which commands a prospect of the country, the lake, and the mountains.

الصفحة 628 - Clear, placid Leman ! thy contrasted lake, With the wild world I dwelt in, is a thing Which warns me, with its stillness, to forsake Earth's troubled waters for a purer spring.

الصفحة 715 - A province is formed south of the Balkans which will take the name of " Eastern Roumelia," and will remain under the direct political and military authority of His Imperial Majesty the Sultan, under conditions of administrative autonomy.
الصفحة 795 - ... universal numbness and dumbness seemed to pervade the solitude. I suppose in scarcely any other part of the world is this appearance of deadness so strikingly exhibited. On the stillest summer day in England, there is always perceptible an undertone of life thrilling through the atmosphere; and though no breeze should stir a single leaf, yet — in default of motion — there is always a sense of growth; but here not so much as a blade of grass was to be seen, on the sides of the bald excoriated...
الصفحة 706 - French, English, Italian, Hungarian ; and, what is worse, there are ten of these languages spoken in my own family. My grooms are Arabs ; my footmen, French, English, and Germans ; my nurse an Armenian ; my housemaids Russians ; half a dozen other servants, Greeks ; my steward, an Italian ; my...
