Sida lxxi - You have sent me, among the trophies of your unrivalled fame, the staff of a French marshal, and I send you, in return, that of England.
Sida xxxii - The forehead and temples had lost little or nothing of their muscular substance ; the cartilage of the nose was gone ; but the left eye in the first moment of exposure was open and full, though it vanished almost immediately : and the pointed beard, so characteristic of the period of the reign of King Charles, was perfect.
Sida cclxxi - And whereas the Senate of the United States have approved of the said arrangement and recommended that it should be carried into effect, the same having also received the sanction of 'His Royal Highness, the Prince Regent, acting in the name and on the behalf of His...

Sida 76 - At the expiration of the restrictions, I still was inclined to delay taking this step, in the hope that I might owe the redress I sought to your gracious and unsolicited condescension.

Sida lxxxii - Also, for that it is undecent to crowd up myself with my gentleman-usher in my coach, I will have him to have a convenient horse, to attend me either in city or country. And I must have two footmen. And my desire is, that you defray all the charges for me.
Sida cclxix - His Royal Highness can never admit, that in the exercise of the undoubted and hitherto undisputed right of searching neutral merchant vessels in time of war, the impressment of British seamen, when found therein, can be deemed any violation of a neutral flag.
