We know not by what name we should arraign him, For no one category can contain him; A pedant, canting preacher, and a quack, Are load enough to break one ass's back: 50 At last, grown wanton, he presumed to write, Traduced two kings, their kindness to requite; One made the doctor, and one dubb'd the knight.

Yes, but what?--John Robin Ross-Ellison?

The "non-contents" moved off, said that it would not do; was too much of a good thing; escaped to Zoar; and, in the course of this retreat, somebody took--what!--not the pulpit, nor its Bible, nor the hymn books, nor the collecting boxes, nor the unpaid bills belonging the chapel, but--the title deeds of the old place!
Two were made on the Sunday we were there, and they realised what?--not 5 pounds, nor 10 pounds, nor 12 pounds, as is the custom at some of our fashionable places of worship,--no, they just brought in 63 pounds 3s.
She and he play together on the grass-plat, and I feel quite matronly as I sit watching them with their balls and wheel-barrows and whatnots.
Bellew, watching all this from where he sat screened from the throng by a great carved sideboard, and divers chairs, and whatnots,--drew rather harder at his pipe, and, chancing to catch Adam's eye, beckoned him to approach.
That she could resolve to forego all her opening prospects of reconciliation; the reconciliation with a worthless family, on which she has set her whole heart?--Yet she does--she acquits me of all obligation to her, and herself of all expectations from me--And for what?--O that indeed I had given her real cause!
Often have I come out on the landing to meet her; we used to sit on those stairs talking, long after midnight, of what?--of our landlady, of the theatre, of the most suitable ways of enjoying ourselves in life.

But something infinitely more Than just a European War Would have been requisite to part Romance from Mariana's heart; Once more she felt within her stir The dawn of une affaire de coeur; In other words, I must confess She found her thoughts were centred less On that young man who never came And more on Captain What's-his-name, Who'd left his other leg in France And was a model of romance.

For whatsoe'er their sufferings were before, That change they covet makes them suffer more.
I have but that which I receive from Thee And what I give, Thou givest back to me, Transmuted by Thy touch, each worthless thing Changed to the preciousness of gem or gold, And by thy blessing multiplied a thousand fold Illustration All my desire Thou grantest whatsoer I ask!

This practice, which prevailed so early as 1260, the era of the elder Polos, and even, in 851, when the Mahometan travellers visited Southern China, still continues in 1810.--E. The value of the silver somno is nowhere mentioned; but it is of no importance, as it would not enable us to institute any comparison of values whatsoever.--E.
