“ Your valour,” said the Highlander, “ speaks higher langaage than my Northern wits are able to comprehend."

COUNT ROBERT OF PARIS, Vol. I. p. 57.

* - Y de todos, ningunos le parecian tan bien, como los que compuso “el famoso Feliciano de Silva : porque la claridad de su prosa, y aquellas “ entricadas razones suyas, le parecian de perlas : y mas quando llegaba á " leer aquellos requiebros, y cartas de desafios, donde en muchas partes hallaba “ escrito: Le razon de la sinrazon que á mi razon si hace, de tal manera mi " razon enflaquece, que con razon me quexo de la vuestra fermosura. Y tam “ bien quando leia: Los altos cielos que de vuestra divinidad divinamente con " las estrellas os fortifican, y os hacen merecedora del merecimento que merece la vuestra grandeza."

Don Quixote, Ed. Re. Acad. Cap. Prim. fol. 3.

“ But of all his choice store, none pleased him so much as those written by " the famous Feliciano de Silva: for the glitter of his prose and the perplexity " of his style were to him so many pearls, and especially the love-speeches and a challenges, in which abound passages like this:-So enfeebled is my reason " by reason of the unreasonable treatment of my reason, that with reason 1 complain of your beauty .... The High Heavens, that with your divinity divinely fortify you with the stars, rendering you meritorious of the merit merited by your greatness."

WESTALL's Edition, Vol. I. p. 3.
