Pàgina xxxviii - Heaven first taught letters for some wretch's aid, Some banish'd lover, or some captive maid; They live, they speak, they breathe what love inspires, Warm from the soul, and faithful to its fires ; The virgin's wish without her fears impart, Excuse the blush, and pour out all the heart, Speed the soft intercourse from soul to soul, And waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole.

Pàgina 502 - I suffer beyond mea' sure by the present contest, and my spirits are, at times, so ' depressed as to affect my health. I feel an injury done me by ' a man for whom I have borne a sincere and steady friendship ' during more than thirty years, and to whose support I was, at ' one time, indebted for the safety of my fortune, honour and re' putation, with a ten-fold sensibility.
Pàgina 503 - Neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me; for then peradventure I would have hid myself from him : 14 But it was even thou, my companion, my guide, and mine own familiar friend.
Pàgina 36 - I like, kick him out, or anything; but I stood too much in fear of Vattel to do any such thing; and since he was so friendly to us, said I, give me the letters the agent has brought ; all of which he surrendered sharp ; and I sent an express at once to my Lord A., with a confidential letter to the Governor...
