His chief employment while he was here, " was transcribing a family record, which I drew up some " time ago, of my great grandfather, my grandfather, " and father ; who were all very valuable men ; and I " encouraged him in it, for the sake of William, Bernard, " and Edwin, whom it may hereafter have a tendency to " excite to good and honourable...
Strona 244 - As if increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on; and yet, within a month, Let me not think on't: Frailty, thy name is woman!
Strona 217 - I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one now, to mock your own grinning? quite chapfallen? Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must come; make her laugh at that.
