Sida 29 - Then, Madam, the ball shall not take place. Have I not told you that I am in the power of this man? That there are circumstances which it is happy for you that you do not know — which you cannot comprehend, — but which render it essential that you should be civil to Mr. Snobson?

Sida 3 - This mode of receiving visitors only upon one specified day of the week is a most convenient custom! It saves the trouble of keeping the house continually in order and of being always dressed. I flatter myself that / was the first to introduce it amongst the New York ee-light.
Sida 53 - Have you done? Very well, it's my turn now. Antony, perhaps what I have to say don't concern you as much as some others — but I want you to listen to me. You remember, Antony, [his tone becomes serious], a blue-eyed, smiling girl — TIFFANY: Your daughter, Sir?
Sida 41 - Dear me! Millinette, what is the difference? besides I'd have you to know that Americans always improve upon French fashions! here, take the basket, and let me see that you do it in the most you-nick and genteel manner. (MILLINETTE poutingly takes the basket and retires up stage. A MARCH.
