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 259 - An old half-barred stove grate was in the chimney; and in that a large stone bottle without a neck, filled with baleful yew, as an ever-green, withered southernwood, dead sweet-briar, and sprigs of rue in flower.

Pagina 4 - Twill be a mercy, said she, the highest act of mercy you can do, to kill me outright upon this spot — This happy spot, as I will, in my last moments, call it ! — Then, baring, with a still more frantic violence, part of her enchanting neck — Here, here, said the soul-harrowing Beauty, let thy pointed mercy enter...
