"That's a good boy," said the little gentleman. "Never mind your brothers. I'll talk to them." "Pray, sir, don't do any such thing,
Стр. 116 - Thou art so exquisitely wild, 1 think of thee with many fears For what may be thy lot in future years. I thought of times when Pain might be thy guest, Lord of thy house and hospitality; And Grief, uneasy lover ! never rest But when she sate within the touch of thee. O too industrious folly! O vain and causeless melancholy ! Nature will either end thee quite; Or, lengthening out thy season of delight, Preserve for thee, by individual right, A young lamb's heart among the full-grown flocks.

Стр. 131 - Your a great buck, your a great beau ; Your eyes are of so nice a shape, More like a Christian's than an ape ; Your cheek is like the rose's blume, Your hair is like the raven's plume; His nose's cast is of the Roman, He is a very pretty woman. I could not get a rhyme for Roman, So was obliged to call him woman.
Стр. 65 - I catch you here again," muttered Schwartz, coming, half frightened, out of the corner — but, before he could finish his sentence, the old gentleman had shut the house door behind him with a great bang : and there drove past the window, at the same instant, a...
Стр. 59 - He was about four feet six in height, and wore a conical pointed cap of nearly the same altitude, decorated with a black feather some three feet long. His doublet was prolonged behind into something resembling a violent exaggeration of what is now termed a "swallow tail...
Стр. 85 - Then he looked closer and closer at it, and its eye turned on him so mournfully, that he could not stand it. " Confound the King and his gold too," said Gluck ; and he opened the flask, and poured all the water into the dog's mouth.
