9 ページ - I hope your prayers may be heard, with all my heart. Well, then, Jack, I have been considering that I am so strong and hearty, I may continue to plague you a long time. Now, Jack, I am sensible that the income of your commission, and what I have hitherto allowed you, is but a small pittance for a lad of your spirit.
9 ページ - Odds life, sir ! if you have the estate, you must take it with the live stock on it, as it stands.
4 ページ - Sir Anthony. I would by no means wish a daughter of mine to be a progeny of learning ; I don't think so much learning becomes a young woman ; for instance, I would never let her meddle with Greek, or Hebrew, or algebra, or simony, or fluxions, or paradoxes, or such inflammatory branches of learning — neither would it be necessary for her to handle any of your mathematical, astronomical, diabolical instruments.
4 ページ - They, by a strange frenzy driven, fight for power, for plunder, and extended rule : we, for our country, our altars, and our homes. They follow an adventurer whom they fear, and obey a power which they hate : we serve a monarch whom we love — a God whom we adore.

I believe courage must be catching. I certainly do feel a kind of valour rising, as it were — a kind of courage, as I may say. Odds flints, pans, and triggers!
4 ページ - My brave associates — partners of my toil, my feelings, and my fame ! — can Rolla's words add vigour to the virtuous energies which inspire your hearts ? No ! — You have judged as I have, the foulness of the crafty plea by which these bold invaders would delude you — Your generous spirit has compared as mine has, the motives which, in a war like this, can animate their minds, and ours.
22 ページ - I wonder where this Captain Absolute hides himself. Upon my conscience, these officers are always in one's way in love affairs : I remember I might have married Lady Dorothy Carmine, if it had not been for a little rogue of a major, who ran away with her before she could get...
12 ページ - I am entirely at your disposal, sir: if you should think of addressing Miss Languish yourself, I suppose you would have me marry the aunt; or if you should change your mind, and take the old lady — 'tis the same to me — I'll marry the niece.
