Página 35 - Your fault, Madam ! I wish I was to hear such a word come out of his mouth : if he was a minister to-morrow, and to say such a thing from his pulpit, and I by, I'd tell him it was false upon the spot.
Página 8 - Sir, I took the liberty to desire a few moments private conversation with you — I hope you will excuse it— i am really greatly embarrassed ; but, in an affair of such immediate consequence to us both — Jess.
Página 58 - Well, Master Jenkins ! don't you think now that a nobleman, a duke, an earl, or a marquis, might be content to share his title — I say, you understand me — with a sweetener of thirty or forty thousand pounds, to pay off mortgages ? Besides, there's a prospect of my whole estate; for I dare swear her brother will never have any children.
