Страница 234 - Lurk'd in her hand, and mourn'd his captive Queen: He springs to vengeance with an eager pace, And falls like thunder on the prostrate Ace. The nymph exulting fills with shouts the sky; The walls, the woods, and long canals reply.
Страница 36 - Dear, affectionate girl ! I love heart — Good bye — Drive fast, as miss Hunter desires you." Our fair politician, well satisfied with the understanding of her confidante, which never comprehended more than met the ear, and secure in a charge d'affaires, whose powers it was never necessary to limit, stood on the steps before the house-door, deep in reverie, for some minutes after the carriage had driven away, till she was roused by seeing her son returning from his morning's ride.

Страница 322 - Bless me! how quick! how odd!" said Miss Hunter, with a pouting look, which seemed to add — nobody carries me off! Mr. Beaumont looked duller than was becoming. Mrs. Beaumont applied herself to adjust the pretty curls of Miss Hunter's hair; and Mr. Palmer, in one of his absent fits, hummed aloud, as he walked up and down the room, '"And it's, Oh! what will become of me?

Страница 35 - WILL you hear a Spanish lady, How she woo'd an English man ? Garments gay, as rich as may be, Deck'd with jewels had she on ; Of a comely countenance and grace was she ; And by birth and parentage of high degree. As his prisoner there he kept her, In his hands her life did lie ; Cupid's bands did tie her faster, By the liking of...

Страница 5 - Julia's a manager; she's born for rule; And knows her wiser husband is a fool ; Assemblies holds, and spins the subtle thread That guides the lover to his fair one's bed : For difficult amours can smooth the way, And tender letters dictate, or convey.
