By George, I should like to enter for the race myself, if I weren't an old fellow and a poor one.
Seite 197 - ... empty, except on Thursdays, when the farmers put up there, and their tilted carts and gigs make a feeble show of liveliness in the place, or on Petty Sessions, when the magistrates attend in what used to be the old cardroom.

Seite 196 - Clavering westwards towards the sea — the place appears to be so cheery and comfortable that many a traveller's heart must have yearned towards it from the coach-top, and he must have thought that it was in such a calm friendly nook he would like to shelter at the end of life's struggle.

Seite 253 - ... fellow got no small reputation. We have mentioned that he exhibited a certain partiality for rings, jewellery, and fine raiment of all sorts ; and it must be owned that Mr. Pen, during his time at the university, was rather a dressy man, and loved to array himself in splendour.
