Page 246 - SPRING Sheds her own rofy garland on their heads : Till evening comes at laft, ferene and mild ; When after the long vernal day of life, Enamour'd more, as more remembrance fwells With many a proof of recollected love, Together down they fink in focial fleep ; Together freed, their gentle fpirits fly To fcenes where love and blifs immortal reign.
Page 135 - ... the task of dressing her. Miss Clarissa's best suit was a satin slip of light violet colour, the petticoat being stiffened with whalebone ; with a stomacher and apron of fine lace, a necklace of pearls, and a lace cap with a bunch of violets on one side. When equipped in this dress, the nurse took her by the hand, and led her to the door of her poor mother's apartment. In 'the vestibule, she met Mrs. Burton with Isabella, who, looking scornfully at her, would have taken the child from her hand.
