Página 162 - I think what I said to Mr. Secretary was right. Dou't you remember how I used to be in pain when Sir William Temple would look cold and out of humour for three or four days, and I used to suspect a hundred reasons ? I have plucked up> my spirit since then, faith ; he spoiled a fine gentleman.

Página 151 - And now they begin to catch the pikes, and will shortly the trouts (pox on these ministers,) and I would fain know whether the floods were ever so high as to get over the holly bank or the river walk; if so, then all my pikes are gone ; but I hope not.
Página 72 - I believe Addison hindered him out of mere spite, being grated to the soul to think he should ever want my help to save his friend ; yet now he is soliciting me to make another of his friends queen's secretary at Geneva ; and I will do it if I can, it is poor Pastoral Philips.
Página 118 - Steele never came. Harrison, whom Mr. Addison recommended to me, I have introduced to the secretary of state, who has promised me to take care of him ; and I have represented Addison himself so to the ministry, that they think and talk in his favour, though they hated him before. — — Well ; he is now in my debt, and there is an end ; and I never had the least obligation to him, and there is another end.
