Σελίδα 192 - In short, excepting the usual tribute to a mistress's eyebrow, which is the language of passion rather than poetry, I had not for ten years indulged the wish to couple so much as love and dove^ when, finding Lewis in possession of so much reputation, and conceiving that, if I fell behind him in poetical powers, I considerably exceeded him in general information, I suddenly took it into my head to attempt the style of poetry by which he had raised himself to fame.
Σελίδα 383 - An Act to prevent a failure of Justice by reason of variances between records and writings produced in evidence in support thereof.
Σελίδα 397 - Dubois, a witty writer, ventured to satirize his trade in tours, in a 12mo volume, entitled My Pocket Book, or Hints for a Ryghte Merrie and Conceitede Tour, in 4to, to be called The Stranger in Ireland, in 1805, by a Knight Errant, and dedicated to the paper-makers.
