Halaman 187 - And, as we bring our characters forward, I will ask leave, as a man and a brother, not only to introduce them, but occasionally to step down from the platform, and talk about them: if they are good and kindly, to love them and shake them by the hand : if they are silly, to laugh at them confidentially in the reader's sleeve: if they are wicked and heartless, to abuse them in the strongest terms which politeness admits of.
Halaman 5 - So very narrowly he caused it to be traced out, that there was not one single hide, nor one yard of land, nor even - it is shame to tell, though it seemed to him no shame to do - an ox, nor a cow, nor a swine, was left, that was not set down in his writ.
