Стр. 272 - O Susan, Susan, lovely dear, My vows shall ever true remain; Let me kiss off that falling tear; We only part to meet again. Change, as ye list, ye winds; my heart shall be The faithful compass that still points to thee. Believe not what the landmen say, Who tempt with doubts thy constant mind.
Стр. 272 - Oh ! where shall I my true love find ? Tell me, ye jovial sailors, tell me true, If my sweet William sails among the crew?
Стр. 77 - Under the shelter of so broad a shield. This is that hat, whose very sight did win ye To laugh and clap as though the devil were in ye. As then, for Nokes, so now I hope you'll be So dull, to laugh once more for love of me. I'll write a play, says one, for I have got A broad-brimmed hat, and waist-belt, towards a plot. Says the other, I have one more large than that.
Стр. 272 - Though battle call me from thy arms, Let not my pretty Susan mourn ; Though cannons roar, yet safe from harms William shall to his dear return.
Стр. 44 - The house full of Parliament-men, it being holyday with them : and it was observable how a gentleman of good habit, sitting just before us, eating of some fruit in the midst of the play, did drop down as dead, being choked ; but with much ado Orange Moll did thrust her finger down his throat, and brought him to life again.
Стр. 272 - The cord slides swiftly through his glowing hands, And (quick as lightning) on the deck he stands. So the sweet lark, high poised in air, Shuts close his pinions to his breast, (If chance his mate's shrill call he hear,) And drops at once into her nest. The noblest captain in the British fleet Might envy William's lip those kisses sweet.
Стр. 99 - Erminia infra l'ombrose piante d'antica selva dal cavallo è scòrta, né più governa il fren la man tremante, e mezza quasi par tra viva e morta.
Стр. 43 - Comedy was undertaken : under this conviction an attempt has been made to show some glimpses of the " silver lining " of a character, to whose influence over an unprincipled voluptuary, we owe a national asylum for veteran soldiers, and whose brightness shines with the most amiable lustre in many actions of her life, and in the last disposal of her worldly effects.
Стр. 144 - Be conceal'd from the day, Set a thousand guards upon her, Love will find out the way.
Стр. 43 - Whilst we may safely reject as unfounded gossip many of the stories associated with the name of Nell Gwynne, we cannot refuse belief to the various proofs of kind-heartedness, liberality, and — taking into consideration her subsequent power to do harm — absolute goodness, of a woman mingling, if we may believe a passage in Pepys, from her earliest years in the most depraved scenes of a most dissolute age.
