Стр. 73 - A stranger yet to pain! I feel the gales, that from ye blow, A momentary bliss bestow, As waving fresh their gladsome wing, My weary soul they seem to sooth, And, redolent of joy and youth, To breathe a second spring.
Стр. 527 - AND CORRESPONDENCE OF SIR ROBERT MURRAY KEITH, KB, Minister Plenipotentiary at the Courts of Dresden, Copenhagen, and Vienna, from 1769 to 1793; with Biographical Memoirs of QUEEN CAROLINE MATILDA, SISTER OF GEORGE III.
Стр. 266 - As, though the pride of Middleton and Bland, All boys may read and girls may understand! Then might I sing without the least offence, And all I sung should be the nation's sense,* Or teach the melancholy muse to mourn, Hang the sad verse on Carolina's urn, And hail her passage to the realms of rest.

Стр. 82 - Lord ! how great I used to think anybody just landed at the Christopher ! But here are no boys for me to send for — here I am, like Noah, just returned into his old world again, with all sorts of queer feels about me. By the way, the clock strikes the old cracked sound ; I recollect so much, and remember so little...
Стр. 397 - Philosophers, and such folks, tell us, No great analogy between Greatness and happiness is seen. If then, as it might follow straight, Wretched to be, is to be great ; Forbid it, Gods, that you should try What 'tis to be so great as I...
Стр. 524 - It connects, in many instances, the new with the old nobility, and it will in all cases show the cause which has influenced the revival of an extinct dignity in a new creation. It should be particularly noticed, that this new work appertains nearly as much to extant as to extinct persons of distinction; for though dignities pass away, it rarely occurs that whole families do.
