Sida 147 - The marriage, if uncontradicted report can be credited, made no addition to his happiness ; it neither found them nor made them equal. She always temembered her own rank, and thought herself entitled to treat with very little ceremony the tutor of her son.
Sida 246 - And terror on my aching s'ight ; the tombs And monumental caves of death look cold, And shoot a chilness to my trembling heart. Give me thy hand, and let me hear thy voice ; Nay, quickly speak to me, and let me hear Thy voice — my own affrights me with its echoes.
Sida 385 - It was his peculiar happiness, that he scarcely ever found a stranger whom he did not leave a friend ; but it must likewise be added, that he had not often a friend long, without obliging him to become a stranger.
