Seite 488 - And here it is to be noted, that such Ornaments of the Church and of the Ministers thereof, at all Times of their Ministration, shall be retained, and be in use, as were in this Church of England, by the Authority of Parliament, in the Second Year of the Reign of King Edward the Sixth.
Seite 202 - I am making enormous progress in the art of saying nothing in a great many words. I write reports of many sheets, which read as tersely and roundly as leading articles; and if Manteuffel can say what there is in them, after he has read them, he can do more than I can.
Seite 387 - Matters are going well with us; if we are not immoderate in our demands, and do not imagine that we have conquered the world, we shall acquire a peace, which will be worth the trouble. But we are just as quickly intoxicated as discouraged, and I have the ungrateful task of pouring water in the foaming wine, and to make them see that we are not living alone in Europe, but with three neighbors still.
Seite 406 - Sixteen years ago, I was living as a country gentleman, when the King appointed me the envoy of Prussia at the Frankfort Diet. I had been brought up to admire, I might almost say to worship, Austrian policy. Much time however, was not needed to dispel my youthful illusions with regard to Austria, and I became her declared opponent. The humiliation of my country ; Germany sacrificed to the interests of a foreign nation ; a crafty and perfidious line of policy ; — these were not things calculated...
Seite 296 - Master of the Ceremonies, and shall probably soon have a private audience. I am- anxious for work, because I do not know what to do. Today I dined alone; the young gentlemen were out. The whole evening there was rain, and I was alone at home. To whom could I go? I am more lonely in the midst of great Paris than you are at Reinfeld, and sit here like a rat in an empty house. My only amusement was to send away the cook for cheating me in the accounts. You know .how narrowly I look after such things...
Seite 488 - DIRECTORIUM ANGLICANUM ; being a Manual of Directions for the right Celebration of the Holy Communion, for the saying of Matins and Evensong, and for the Performance of other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church, according to the Ancient Use of the Church of England.
Seite 296 - ... Reinfeld, and sit here like a rat in an empty house. My only amusement was to send away the cook for cheating me in the accounts. You know .how narrowly I look after such things : but was a child in this respect. I shall dine for the present at a cafe. How long this is to last, God knows ! In from eight to ten days I shall probably receive a telegraphic summons to Berlin, and then dance and song is over. If my opponents only knew what a benefit they would confer upon me personally by their victory,...
Seite 105 - how men of merit are sought after, the undeserver may," etc. I am sorry to say I have had to buy another horse, as mine is not adapted for evolutions ; however, I must try it, with Grosvenor for a reserve. The latter pulls the carriage like an old coach horse; I must therefore pay for it, you can tell Oscar (as soon as the rape harvest is current), which I had firmly resolved not to do — if he did not draw well. [Here a blot.] Forgive the preceding Arabic ; I have not a moment's time to write this...
Seite 274 - Half an hour ago a courier awakened me with tidings of war and peace. Our politics are sliding more and more into the Austrian groove, and if we fire one shot on the Rhine the Italo-Austrian war is over ; and in place of it we shall see a Prusso-French war, in which Austria, after we have taken the load from her shoulders, will assist, or assist so far as her own interests are concerned. That we should play a very victorious part is scarcely to be conceded. Be it as God...
Seite 490 - Curiosities of the Pulpit and Pulpit Literature. Memorabilia, Anecdotes, &c., of Celebrated Preachers, from the Fourth Century of the Christian Era to the Present Time. By THOMAS JACKSON, MA, Prebendary of St. Paul's Cathedral, and • Rector of Stoke Newington, London.
