Seite 242 - THE stranger who would form a correct opinion of the English character must not confine his observations to the metropolis.

Seite 5 - You shall swear by custom of confession, That you ne.er made nuptial transgression ; Nor since you were married man and wife, By household brawls or contentious strife, Or otherwise at bed or at board, Offended each other in deed or in word ; Or since the parish clerk said Amen...
Seite 426 - ... of smart young gentlemen with no brains at all. On the contrary, the young ladies seated themselves demurely in their rush-bottomed chairs, and knit their own woollen stockings ; nor ever opened their lips, excepting to say yah Mynheer, or yah ya Vrouw, to any question that was asked them ; behaving, in all things, like decent welleducated damsels.
