117 ページ - It is my earnest prayer, for her own sake, as well as her country's, that your Royal Highness may be induced to pause before this point be reached. " Those who have advised you, sir, to delay so long the period of my daughter's commencing her intercourse with the world-, and for that purpose to make Windsor her residence, appear not to have regarded the interruptions to her education which this arrangement occasions; both by the impossibility of obtaining the attendance of proper teachers, and the...
115 ページ - I presume, sir, to represent to your royal highness, that the separation, which every succeeding month is making wider, of the mother and the daughter, is equally injurious to my character, and to her education. I say nothing of the deep wounds which so cruel an arrangement inflicts upon my feelings, although I wouldfain hope that few persons will be found of a disposition to think lightly of these.
115 ページ - ... world this separation of a daughter from her mother will only admit of one construction — a construction fatal to the mother's reputation. Your Royal Highness will also pardon me for adding, that there is no less inconsistency than injustice in this treatment. He who dares advise your Royal Highness to overlook the evidence of my innocence, and disregard the sentence of complete acquittal which it produced, or is wicked and false enough still to whisper suspicions in your ear, betrays...

178 ページ - When we arrived at the opera, to the princess's and all her attendants' infinite surprise, we saw the regent placed between the Emperor and the King of Prussia, and all the minor princes in a box to the right. " God save the king" was performing when the princess entered, and consequently she did not sit down.
296 ページ - Leeching, patronize him, being a friend of mine, who will I think entertain you. Give my love to my fair and lovely friend, and tell her I wish the house of A may reign triumphant on the shores of M and I , and when, seven years before the end of the world, a deluge shall drown the nations, may Columbus' Isle still swim above the flood, though the sea should at one tide cover the green-headed I and Ireland.
12 ページ - I told him to make me a better pair, and send them to me. I brought letters from all the princes and princesses to him, from all the petty courts, and I tossed them to him and said ; ' There , that's to prove I'm not an impostor.
181 ページ - Highness. The latter was delighted. She gradually gave way to the hope which charmed her, and said — poor soul — " my ears are very ugly, but I would give them both to persuade the Emperor to come to me to a ball, a supper, any entertainment that he would choose."
