Seite 223 - I scarcely ever met with a better companion ; he has inexhaustible spirits, infinite wit and humour » and a great deal of knowledge ; but a thorough profligate in principle as in practice, his life stained with every vice, and his conversation full of blasphemy and indecency. These morals he glories in — for shame is a weakness he has long since surmounted.
Seite 87 - Dr. Thomas, who is Chaplain to the King. They are both Chaplains to the King. Dr. Thomas, who is a very good preacher.
Seite 192 - His Royal Highness, for the better apprehending and bringing to justice the persons concerned in writing and sending the anonymous letters above-mentioned, is hereby pleased, in the name and on the behalf...
