Стр. 97 - Dean Willmott's mental life was spent In Arabic and architecture : On both of these most eloquent — It was a treat to hear him lecture. His dinners were exceeding fine, His quiet jests extremely witty : He kept the very best port wine In that superb cathedral city. But...
Стр. 84 - It's gude to be merry and wise, It's gude to be honest and true; It's gude to support Caledonia's cause, And bide by the buff and the blue. Here's a health to them that's awa', Here's a health to them that's awa', Here's a health to Charlie the chief o' the clan, Altho' that his band be but sma
Стр. 116 - I do not like thee, Dr. Fell, The reason why I can not tell ; But only this I know fall well, I do not like thee, Dr. Fell."

Стр. 98 - Heigho ! the daughter of the Dean ! Beneath those elm-trees apostolic, While autumn sunlight danced between, We two had many a merry frolic. Sweet Sybil Willmott ! long ago To your young heart was Love a visitor : And often have I wished to know How you could marry a solicitor.
Стр. 16 - re wrong. — He was the mildest manner'd man That ever scuttled ship or cut a throat ; With such true breeding of a gentleman, You never could divine his real thought ; No courtier could, and scarcely woman can Gird more deceit within a petticoat : Pity he loved adventurous life's variety, He was so great a loss to good society.
Стр. 29 - Railways are excellent things, and I wonder how the world got on without them ; but twenty or thirty miles on the best line in England thrills every nerve in my body, and makes my brain throb, and causes me to feel so grimy that I abhor myself. Then the hideous smell of the engine, the dust and ashes that attack your eyes and nostrils, the fustiness of the carriages, the maniacal scream of the steam-whistle, the grinding and groaning noises of the whole machine — are...
Стр. 142 - She dipped her fingers in the brook, And gazed awhile with happy look Upon the windings of a book Of Cyprian hymnings tender. The ripples to the ocean raced — The flying minutes passed in haste : His arm was round the maiden's waist — That waist so very slender.
