Стр. 168 - Profuse of bliss, and pregnant with delight! Eternal pleasures in thy presence reign, And smiling plenty leads thy wanton train; Eas'd of her load, subjection grows more light, And poverty looks cheerful in thy sight: Thou mak'st the gloomy face of nature gay, Giv'st beauty to the sun, and pleasure to the day.
Стр. 449 - Inspired repulsed battalions to engage, And taught the doubtful battle where to rage. So when an angel by divine command, With rising tempests shakes a guilty land, Such as of late o'er pale Britannia past, Calm and serene he drives the furious blast ; And, pleased the Almighty's orders to perform, Rides in the whirlwind, and directs the storm.
Стр. 171 - The two aged actors upon this great theatre of philosophy and frivolity then embraced each other, by hugging one another in their arms, and kissing each other's cheeks ; and then the tumult subsided, and the cry immediately spread through the whole kingdom, and I suppose, all over Europe, 'Qu'il e"tait charmant de voir embrasser Solon et Sophocle !

Стр. 131 - ... who have commissions from any other prince or state in enmity with either nation, to fit their ships in the ports of either the one or the other of the aforesaid parties, to sell what they have taken, or in any other manner whatsoever to exchange their ships...
Стр. 242 - This proposition of delivering ourselves, bound and gagged, ready for hanging, without even a right to complain, and without a friend to be found afterwards among all mankind, you would have us embrace upon the faith of an act of Parliament ! Good God ! an act of your Parliament! This demonstrates that you do not yet know us, and that you fancy we do not know you ; but it is not merely this flimsy faith, that we are to act upon; you offer us hope, the hope of PLACES, PENSIONS, and PEERAGES. These,...
Стр. 391 - That the Ministers Plenipotentiary from the United States, if invited thereto, be, and hereby are respectively empowered to accede to such regulations, conformable to the spirit of the said declaration, as may be agreed upon by the Congress expected to assemble in pursuance of the invitation of her Imperial Majesty.
Стр. 459 - I deserved the enmity of the latter, because I might have avoided it by paying him a compliment, which I neglected. That of the former I owe to the people of France, who happened to respect me too much and him too little ; which I could bear, and he could not.
Стр. 171 - Voltaire and M. Franklin should be introduced to each other. This was done and they bowed and spoke to each other; this was no satisfaction — there must be something more. Neither of the philosophers seemed to divine what was wished or expected ; they, however, took each other by the hand.
