Стр. 229 - Offending race of human kind, By nature, reason, learning, blind; You who through frailty stepped aside, And you who never err'd through pride; You who in different sects were shamm'd, And come to see each other damn'd; (So some folk told you, but they knew No more of Jove's designs than you;) The world's mad business now is o'er, And I resent your freaks no more; I to such blockheads set my wit, I damn such fools — go, go, you're bit!

Стр. 110 - I look upon this to be the greatest event that can ever happen to me; but all my preparations will not suffice to make me bear it like a philosopher, nor altogether like a Christian.
Стр. 246 - I fear there is more difficulty in this affair than those good-natured gentlemen apprehend; especially as their election cannot be delayed longer than the llth of next month.
Стр. 227 - Perhaps I may allow the Dean, Had too much satire in his vein; And seem'd determined not to starve it, Because no age could more deserve it. Yet malice never was his aim; He lash'd the vice, but spared the name, No individual could resent, Where thousands equally were meant...
Стр. 72 - Am I a freeman in England, and do I become a slave in six hours by crossing the channel...
