الصفحة 344 - Attending the funeral of a father could not be pleasant; his leg extremely bad, yet forced to stand upon it near two hours ; his face bloated and distorted with his late paralytic stroke, which has affected too one of his eyes ; and placed over the mouth of the vault, into which, in all probability, he must himself so soon descend ; think how unpleasant a situation ! He bore it all with a firm and unaffected countenance.
الصفحة 173 - The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd, Lets in new light through chinks that time has made. Stronger by weakness, wiser men become, As they draw near to their eternal home : Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view, That stand upon the threshold of the new.
الصفحة 253 - Hay says, it will soon be as shameful to beat a Frenchman as to beat a woman. Indeed, one is forced to ask every morning what victory there is, for fear of missing one.
الصفحة 332 - A little after seven, he went into the water-closet; the German valet de chambre heard a noise, listened, heard something like a groan, ran in, and found the hero of Oudenarde and Dettingen on the floor, with a gash on his right temple, by falling against the corner of a bureau. He tried to speak, could not, and expired.
الصفحة 373 - Yet to do the folks justice, they are sensible and reasonable, and civilized; their very language is polished since I lived among them. I attribute this to their more frequent intercourse with the world and the capital, by the help of good roads and postchaises, which, if they have abridged the King's dominions, have at least tamed his subjects.
الصفحة 209 - Dr. Young has published a new book,1 on purpose, he says himself, to have an opportunity of telling a story that he has known these forty years. Mr. Addison sent for the young Lord Warwick, as he was dying, to show him in what peace a Christian could die — unluckily he died of brandy — nothing makes a Christian die in peace like being maudlin ! but don't say this in Gath, where you are.
الصفحة 464 - Lady Mary Wortley is arrived; I have seen her; I think her avarice, her dirt, and her vivacity are all increased.
الصفحة 243 - Talking of the farce of' High Life below Stairs,' he said,' Here is a farce which is really very diverting when you see it acted, and yet one may read it and not know that one has been reading any thing at all.
الصفحة 265 - As soon as we entered the chapel, the organ played, and the Magdalens sung a hymn in parts; you cannot imagine how well. The chapel was dressed with orange and myrtle, and there wanted nothing but a little incense, to drive away the devil— or to invite him.
الصفحة 466 - ... by inches in such insufferable heat and stench. At the top of the room are ropes to dry clothes. I asked if we were to have rope-dancing between the acts.
