Strona cix - ... nature has not made us suitable to each other. Tranquil and comfortable society is, however, in our power: let our intercourse therefore be restricted to that, and I will distinctly subscribe to the condition which you required through Lady Cholmondeley, that even in the event...
Strona xxv - Princess's house in the month of November following. Neither should we be more warranted in expressing any doubt respecting the alleged pregnancy of the Princess as stated in the original declarations, — a fact so fully contradicted, and by so many witnesses, to whom, if true, it must in various ways, have been known, that we cannot think it entitled to the smallest credit.
Strona xxviii - Majesty will perceive that several strong circumstances of this description have been positively sworn to by witnesses, who cannot, in our judgment, be suspected of any unfavourable bias, and whose veracity, in this respect, we have seen no ground to question.
Strona xxix - ... that, as on the one hand, the facts of pregnancy and delivery are to our minds satisfactorily disproved, so on the other hand we think, that the circumstances to which we now refer, particularly those stated to have passed between her Royal Highness and Captain Manby, must be credited until they shall receive some decisive contradiction ; and, if true, are justly entitled to the most serious consideration.
Strona lx - ... impropriety of conduct she would describe by it, it is extremely difficult, with any precision, to ascertain. How many women are there, most virtuous, mos't truly modest, incapable of any thing impure, vicious, or immoral, in deed or thought, who, from greater vivacity of spirits, from less natural reserve, from that want of caution which the very consciousness of innocence betrays them into, conduct themselves in a manner which a woman of a graver character, of more reserved disposition, but...
Strona lvi - I understood and believe, he to6k lodgings at Blackheath ; and as to the mere fact of his being so frequently at my house, — his intimacy and friendship with Lord and Lady Townshend, which of itself was assurance to me of his respectability and character — my pleasure in shewing my respect to them, by notice and attention to a friend of theirs, — his undertaking the care of my charity boys, — and his accidental residence at Blackheath, will, I should trust, not unreasonably account for it.
Strona xlvii - ... case, where nothing but my own word can be adduced, my own word alone may be opposed to whatever little remains of credit or weight may, after all the above observations, be supposed yet to belong to Mr. Cole, to his inferences, his insinuations; or his facts. Not, indeed, that I have yet finished my observations on Mr. Cole's credit; but I must reserve the remainder till I consider his evidence with respect to Mr. Lawrence ; and till I have occasion to comment upon the testimony of Fanny Lloyd....
Strona xxviii - We do not, however, feel ourselves at liberty, much as we should wish it, to close our Report here. Besides the allegations of the pregnancy and delivery of the Princess, those declarations, on the whole of which Your Majesty has been pleased to command us to inquire and report, contain, as we have already remarked, other particulars respecting the conduct of her Royal Highness, such as must, especially considering her exalted rank and station, necessarily give occasion to very unfavourable interpretations.
Strona xxxv - I fitted up, as your Majesty may have observed, one of the rooms in my house after the fashion of a Turkish tent. Sir Sidney furnished me with a pattern for it, in a drawing of the tent of Murat Bey, which he had brought over with him from Egypt.
Strona lix - ... something in manner, which gave the character to conduct, and must have entered mainly into such a judgment as Mrs. Lisle has here pronounced. To a certain extent I should be obliged to agree to this ; but, if I am to have any prejudice from this observation ; if it is to give a weight and authority to Mrs. Lisle's judgment, let me have the advantage of it also.
