Strona 141 - It is the most extraordinary thing that has happened in my day. I heard it with my own ears, from his uncle, Lord Westcote. I am so glad to have every evidence of the spiritual world, that I am willing to believe it.
Strona 135 - I could send you volumes on the ghost, and I believe if I were to stay a little, I might send its life, dedicated to my lord Dartmouth, by the ordinary of Newgate, its two great patrons. A drunken parish clerk set it on foot out of revenge, the methodists have adopted it, and the whole town of London think of nothing else.

Strona 140 - If all your fear be of apparitions," said the Prince, " I will promise you safety: there is no danger from the dead ; he that is once buried will be seen no more.

Strona 310 - WERTHER had a love for Charlotte Such as words could never utter ; Would you know how first he met her? She was cutting bread and butter. Charlotte was a married lady, And a moral man was Werther, And for all the wealth of Indies, Would do nothing for to hurt her. So he sighed and pined and ogled, And his passion boiled and bubbled, Till he blew his silly brains out, And no more was by it troubled. Charlotte, having seen his body Borne...
Strona 140 - A total disbelief of them is adverse to the opinion of the existence of the soul between death and the last day ; the question simply is, whether departed spirits ever have the power of making themselves perceptible to us : a man who thinks he has 1 This name is supplied by Malone.
