Стр. 9 - LIFE IN LONDON : or, the Day and Night Scenes of Jerry Hawthorn, Esq., and his Elegant Friend, Corinthian Tom.
Стр. xlix - I'm amongst you, and by Heaven it glads me, To see so many virtues thus united, To restore justice and dethrone oppression. Command this sword, if you would have it quiet, Into this breast; but if you think it worthy To cut the throats of reverend rogues in robes, Send me into the cursed assembled Senate; It shrinks not, though I meet a father there; Would you behold this city flaming ?

Стр. xlix - Let him groan under't long, linger an age In the worst agonies and pangs of death, And find its ease, but late.
Стр. liv - I do conclude, that at this time, without considerable omissions, the Tragedy should not be acted ; and whilst I am persuaded, that your intentions are upright, I conceive that it is precisely for this reason, (though it may not strike Authors) that it has been the wisdom of the Legislature to have an Examiner appointed, and power given to the Chamberlain of the Household, to judge, whether certain plays should be acted at all, or not acted at particular times.
