Seite 329 - An Act for • removing all Doubts and Apprehensions concerning Taxation by the Parliament of Great Britain, in any of the Colonies, Provinces, and Plantations in North America, and the West Indies...
Seite 81 - The Curchod (Madame Necker) I saw at Paris. She was very fond of me, and the husband particularly civil. Could they insult me more cruelly ? Ask me every evening to supper ; go to bed, and leave me alone with his wife — what an impertinent security ! it is making an old lover of mighty little consequence.
Seite 213 - Each had his measured phraseology ; and Johnson's famous parallel between Dryden and Pope might be loosely parodied, in reference to himself and Gibbon. Johnson's style was grand, and Gibbon's elegant ; the stateliness of the former was sometimes pedantic, and the polish of the latter was occasionally finical.

Seite 59 - The most sociable women I have met with are the king's daughters. I chatted for about a quarter of an hour with them, talked about Lausanne, and grew so very free and easy that I drew my snuff-box...
Seite 381 - Forty thousand Puritans, such as they might be in the time of Cromwell, have started out of their graves ; the tumult has been dreadful, and even the remedy of military force and martial law is unpleasant. But Government, with fifteen thousand regulars in town and every gentleman but one on their side, must extinguish the flame.
Seite 270 - George, with his own hand, wrote a very polite epistle to sister Kitty, requesting her friendly assistance. Full powers and instructions were sent at the same time to Gunning to agree for any force between five and twenty thousand men, carte blanche for the terms...
