Page 419 - Wealth, my lad, was made to wander, Let it wander as it will ; Call the jockey, call the pander, Bid them come and take their fill. When the bonny blade carouses, Pockets full, and spirits high — What are acres ? what are houses ? Only dirt, or wet or dry. Should the guardian friend or mother, Tell the woes of wilful waste : Scorn their counsel, scorn their pother, — You can hang or drown at last.
Page 253 - In testimony whereof I have caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed to these presents, and signed the same with my hand.
Page 246 - My confidence in our minister plenipotentiary in London continues undiminished. But a mission like this, while it corresponds with the solemnity of the occasion, will announce to the world a solicitude for a friendly adjustment of our complaints, and a reluctance to hostility. Going immediately from the United States, such an envoy will carry with him a full knowledge of the existing temper and sensibility of our country, and will thus be taught to vindicate our rights with firmness, and to cultivate...

Page 313 - If any person come near the calves, they clap their heads close to the ground, and lie like a hare in form to hide themselves.
Page 253 - And I do moreover exhort all individuals, officers, and bodies of men to contemplate with abhorrence the measures leading directly or indirectly to those crimes which produce this resort to military coercion...
Page 298 - ... she amasses treasure, and makes herself feared and respected by as many as she can. But she did not foresee that she should find a young actress in her way, whom the king dotes on ; and she has it not in her power to withdraw him from her.
Page 298 - He divides his care, his time, and his health, between these two. The actress is as haughty as Mademoiselle : she insults her, she makes grimaces at her, she attacks her, she frequently steals the king from her, and boasts whenever he gives her the preference. She is young, indiscreet, confident, wild, and of an agreeable humour : she sings, she dances, she acts her part with a good grace.
