"It (was not easy to withstand the ingenious cajoleries which, when he chose to be agreeable, Trebeck could so artfully employ. He directed a good deal of his conversation to Henry, and paid a polite attention to all that he said. Then Trebeck was such an agreeable listener, and laughed so precisely in the right place," that — in short, the fish was...
Pàgina 133 - The reputed heir is said to have absconded, leaving unpaid play debts, and divers bonds against him, to a considerable amount. This event has caused great consternation in certain attic circles in the neighbourhood of Pall Mall, and to some respectable money lenders of the fraternity of Duke's place.
