Σελίδα 101 - When a ftrange noife offends his ear, The din increas'd as it came near, And in his yard at laft he view'd Of farmers a great multitude ; Who that day, walking of their rounds, Had difagreed about their bounds ; And fure the difference muft be wide, Where each does for himfelf decide.
Σελίδα 311 - Boaft petty courts, whence rules new rigour draw, Unknown to Nature's and to Statute-law; Quirks that explain all faving rights away, To give th' attorney and the catchpoll prey.
Σελίδα 197 - I have ever behaved myself towards her, like one who thought it his duty to support with patience all afflictions from that quarter. Indeed, if I had not been capable of forgiving a. Mother, I must have blushed to receive pardon myself at the hands of my Sovereign.

Σελίδα 106 - Loaded with madam and her elf; In her right hand the coral plac'd, Her lap a China orange grac'd : Pap for the babe was not forgot ; And lullaby's melodious note, That warbled in his ears all day, Shorten'd the rugged, tedious way. Frank, to the...
Σελίδα 175 - Thus captives oft excelling arts acquire, And boldly struggle, through a state of shame, To life, ease, plenty, liberty, and fame. Sword-law has often Europe's balance gain'd, And one red victory years of peace maintain'd. We pass through want to wealth, through dismal strife To calm content, through death to endless life.
