Our peasantry now read The Rights of Man on mountains and moors and by the wayside; and shepherds make the analogy between their occupation and that of their governors.
الصفحة 233 - LORENZO rears again his awful head, And feels his ancient glories round him spread ; The Muses starting from their trance revive, And at their ROSCOE'S bidding, wake and live.
الصفحة 47 - Find, if you can, in what you cannot change. Manners with fortunes, humours turn with climes, Tenets with books, and principles with times.
