Стр. 86 - tis a sweet shower, it does much good. The fruitful grounds and meadows of her soul Have been long dry : pour down, thou blessed dew ! Rise, mother ; troth, this shower has made you higher.
Стр. 90 - That's a good lay, for I must kill myself. Brother, that's I, that sits for me: do you mark it? And I must stand ready here to make away myself yonder.

Стр. 36 - O think upon the pleasure of the palace ! Secured ease and state ! the stirring meats, Ready to move out of the dishes, that e'en now quicken when they're eaten ! Banquets abroad by torch-light ! music ! sports ! Bare-headed vassals, that had ne'er the fortune To keep on their own hats, but let horns wear 'em ! Nine coaches waiting — hurry, hurry, hurry — Cast.
