الصفحة 128 - There is not a gem, a coin, a book, thrown aside on his chimneypiece, his sofa, his table, that does not bespeak an almost fastidious elegance in the possessor.
الصفحة 207 - MY FIRST PLAY BY ELIA. At the north end of Cross-court there yet stands a portal, of some architectural pretensions, though reduced to humble use, serving at present for an entrance to a printing-office. This old door-way, if you are young, reader, you may not know was the identical pit entrance to Old Drurv — Garriek's Drury — all of it that is left. I never pass it without shaking some forty years from off my shoulders, recurring to the evening when I passed through it to see my first play.
الصفحة 122 - ... the window was open and looked out on nursery gardens, their almond trees in blossom, and beyond, bare walls of houses, and over these, roofs and chimneys, and roofs and chimneys, and here and there a steeple, and whole London crowned with darkness gathering behind like the illimitable resources of a dream. I tried to persuade him to leave the accursed den, and he wished — but — but — perhaps he didn't wish on the whole.
الصفحة 125 - In his family room, where are a sickly large wife and a whole shoal of well-conditioned wild children, you will find half a dozen old rickety chairs gathered from half a dozen different hucksters, and all seemingly engaged, and just pausing, in a violent hornpipe.

الصفحة 82 - I have been talking of, you must be informed, that every night constantly I go to Ranelagh; which has totally beat Vauxhall. Nobody goes anywhere else — everybody goes there. My Lord Chesterfield is so fond of it, that he says he has ordered all his letters to be directed thither.
الصفحة 125 - ... all seemingly engaged, and just pausing, in a violent hornpipe. On these and around them and over the dusty table and ragged carpet lie all kinds of litter, — books, papers, egg-shells, scissors, and last night when I was there the torn heart of a half-quarter loaf.
الصفحة 20 - Queen of Charles Stuart, late King of England, made and taken by us whose names are hereunto subscribed in the month of...
الصفحة 125 - Nondescript! unutterable! Mrs. Hunt asleep on cushions ; four or five beautiful, strange, gipsy-looking children running about in undress, whom the lady ordered to get us tea. The eldest boy, Percy, a sallow, black-haired youth of sixteen, with a kind of dark cotton nightgown on, went whirling about like a familiar, providing everything : an indescribable dreamlike household.
الصفحة 44 - With houses looking on, on every side, save where a reeking little tunnel of a court gives access to the iron gate - with every villainy of life in action close on death, and every poisonous element of death in action close on life - here they lower our dear brother down a foot or two, here sow him in corruption, to be raised in corruption...
