Стр. 38 - Jack ; — I have heard you for some time with patience — I have been cool — quite cool ; but take care — you know I am compliance itself — when I am not thwarted ; — no one more easily led — when I have my own way ; — but don't put me in a frenzy.
Стр. 20 - What business have you, miss, with preference and aversion? They don't become a young woman; and you ought to know, that as both always wear off, 'tis safest in matrimony to begin with a little aversion. I am sure I hated your poor dear uncle before marriage as if he'd been a black-amoor - and yet, Miss, you are sensible what a wife I made! - and when it pleas'd Heav'n to release me from him, 'tis unknown what tears I shed!
Стр. 152 - Cheeks of rose, untouch'd by art? I will own the colour true, When yielding blushes aid their hue. Is her hand so soft and pure ?

Стр. 64 - O'Trigger line, that would furnish the new room; every one of whom had killed his man! — For though the mansionhouse and dirty acres have slipped through my fingers, I thank heaven our honour and the family-pictures are as fresh as ever.
Стр. 18 - Here, my dear Lucy, hide these books. Quick, quick!
