Pagina 258 - A horrid hole of a house, in an alley they call a court ; stairs wretchedly narrow, even to the first-floor rooms : And into a den they led me, with broken walls, which had been papered, as I saw by a multitude of tacks, and some torn bits held on by the rusty heads. The floor indeed was clean, but the ceiling was smoked with variety of figures, and initials of names, that had been the woful employment of wretches who had no other way to amuse themselves.
Pagina 56 - Will not the generality of the world acquit me, if I do marry? And what is that injury which a church rite will at any time repair ? Is not the catastrophe of every story that ends in wedlock accounted happy, be the difficulties in the progress to it ever so great?
