That hearty sincere friendship, that plain and open ingenuity in all your commerce, is what I am sure I never can find in another man.

الصفحة 195 - The truest reflection, and at the same time the bitterest satire, which can be made on the present age, is this ; that to think as you think, will make a man pass for romantic. Sincerity, constancy, tenderness, are rarely to be found. They are so much out of use, that the man of mode imagines them to be out of nature.
