Стр. 211 - I loosely fly from bough to bough, And rivers drink, and all the shining day Upon fair trees or mossy rocks I play ; In fine, I live and reign, when I retire From all that you equal with heaven admire, Like one at last from the priest's service fled, Loathing the honied cakes, I long for bread.

In point of defensive armour he carried none , except a steel cap, which hung at his saddle-bow , while its place on his head was supplied by a Genoa bonnet of black velvet, round which his rich chestnut...
Стр. 210 - ... set full of new devised fashions. In this garden, also, was the King, and five with him, apparelled in garments of purple satin, all of cuts with H. and K. every edge garnished with frised gold, and every garment full of posies, made of letters of fine gold in bullion, as thick as they might be, and every person had his name in like letters of massy gold.
