Seite 54 - Terrier, who everybody said would have been a better match ? for his estate is just as good as yours, and he has broke his neck since we have been married. Sir PET.
Seite 30 - I took you from; but now you must have your coach — vis-d-vis — and three powdered footmen before your chair; and, in the summer, a pair of white cats to draw you to Kensington Gardens.
