Página 476 - All accounts of gallantry, pleasure, and entertainment shall be under the article of White's Chocolate-house; poetry, under that of Will's Coffee-house; learning, under the title of Grecian; foreign and domestic news you will have from St. James's Coffee-house ; and what else I shall on any other subject offer, shall be dated from my own apartment.
Página 479 - WHEN I consider this great city in its several quarters and divisions, I look upon it as an aggregate of various nations, distinguished from each other by their respective customs, manners, and interests.
Página 313 - O PATRIA mia, vedo le mura e gli archi E le colonne ei simulacri e l'erme Torri degli avi nostri, Ma la gloria non vedo, Non vedo il lauro e il ferro ond' eran carchi I nostri padri antichi.
