Seite 8 - ROWLANDS' ODONTO; or, Pearl Dentifrice. A White Powder, compounded of the rarest and most fragrant exotics. It bestows on the teeth a Pearl-like Whiteness, frees them from Tartar, and imparts to the gums a healthy firmness, and to the breath a grateful sweetness and purity.
Seite 34 - Arts had named a wretched Foreigner his Historical Painter in disparagement or in ignorance of the merits of his own countrymen! That this Maecenas of the. Age patronized not a single deserving writer! That this Breather of Eloquence could not say a few decent extempore words, — if we are to judge at least from what he said to his regiment on its embarkation for Portugal! That this Conqueror of Hearts was the disappointer of hopes!
Seite 54 - Hottentot indeed, and tho' your abilities are respectable, you never can be respected yourself. He has the aspect of an Idiot, without the faintest ray of sense gleaming from any one feature — with the most awkward garb, and unpowdered grey wig, on one side only of his head — he is for ever dancing the devil's jig, and sometimes he makes the most driveling effort to whistle some thought in his absent paroxisms.
Seite 34 - But this George, what was he? I look through all his life, and recognise but a bow and a grin. I try and take him to pieces, and find silk stockings, padding, stays, a coat with frogs and a fur collar, a star and blue ribbon, a pocket-handkerchief prodigiously scented, one of Truefitt's best nutty-brown wigs reeking with oil, a set of teeth and a huge black stock, underwaistcoats, more underwaistcoats, and then nothing.
