Strona 102 - Presto, who has not had one happy day since he left you, as hope saved. — It is the last sally I will ever make, but I hope it will turn to some account. I have done more for these, * and I think they are more honest than the last ; however, I will not be disappointed. I would make MD and me easy ; and I never desired more.
Strona 24 - They may talk of the you know what ,• 3 but, gad, if it had not been for that, I should never have been able to get the access I have had ; and if that helps me to succeed, then that same thing will be serviceable to the church.
Strona 114 - I would but come and see him ; but I won't, and he shall do it by message, or I will cast him off. I will tell you the cause of our quarrel when I see you, and refer it to yourselves. In that he did something, which he intended for a favour, and I have taken it quite otherwise, disliking both the thing and the manner, and it has heartily vexed me ; and all I have said is truth, though it looks like jest : and I absolutely refused to submit to his intended favour, and expect farther satisfaction.
Strona 72 - Stay," he writes one morning — it is the 14th of December, 1710 —" Stay, I will answer some of your letter this morning in bed — let me see. Come and appear little letter! Here I am says he, and what say you to Stella this morning fresh and fasting? And can Stella read this writing without hurting her dear eyes?" he goes on, after more kind prattle and fond whispering. The dear eyes shine clearly upon him then — the good angel of his life is with him and blessing him.
Strona 200 - Farewell, my dearest lives, and delights, I love you better than ever, if possible, as hope saved, I do, and ever will. God Almighty bless you ever, and make us happy together; I pray for this twice every day; and I hope God will hear my | poor hearty prayers.
Strona 18 - I lodge in Bury Street, where I removed a week ago. I have the first floor, a dining-room, and bed-chamber at eight shillings a week ; plaguy deep, but I spend nothing for eating, never go to a tavern, and very seldom in a coach ; yet after all it will be expensive.
Strona 5 - Every thing is turning upside down; every Whig in great office will, to a man, be infallibly put out; and we shall have such a winter as has not been seen in England.
Strona 155 - Henley would fain engage me to go with Steele and Rowe, &c. to an invitation at sir William Read's*. Surely you have heard of him. He has been a mountebank, and is the queen's oculist : he makes admirable punch, and treats you in gold vessels. But I am engaged, and won't go, neither indeed am I fond of the jaunt.
Strona 37 - I said. So I stopped short in my overture, and we parted very dryly; and I shall say nothing to Steele, and let them do as they will ; but if things stand as they are, he will certainly lose it, unless I save him ; and therefore I will not speak to him, that I may not report to his disadvantage.
Strona 23 - Mr Harley came out to me, brought me in, and presented me to his son-in-law, Lord Doblane,3 (or some such name,) and his own son, and among others, Will Penn the Quaker : we sat two hours, drinking as good wine as you do ; and two hours more he and I alone...
