Seite 85 - Then enlarge on his cunning and wit : Say, how he harangu'd at the Fountain;* Say, how the old patriots were bit, And a mouse was produc'd by a mountain. Then say how he mark'd the new year, By increasing our taxes, and stocks : Then say how he chang'd to a peer, Fit companion for Edgecumbe'f
Seite 29 - A creature, The wonderful'st of all the works of nature: Hither it came from Holland, where 'twas caught (I should not say it came, for it was brought); Tomorrow we're to have it at Crane-court, And 'tis a reptile of so strange a sort, That if 'tis cut in two, it is not dead...
