Has your ladyship heard the epigram he wrote last week on Lady Frizzle's feather catching fire? — Do, Benjamin, repeat it, or the charade you made last night extempore at Mrs. Drowzie's conversazione. Come now; your first is the name of a fish, your second a great naval commander, and Sir Ben. Uncle, now — pr'ythee Crab. I'faith, ma'am, 'twould surprise you to hear how ready he is at all these sort...
Pagina 40 - Terrier, who everybody said would have been a better match? for his estate is just as good as yours, and he has broke his neck since we have been married.
