Strana 175 - Gallant and gay in Cliveden's proud alcove, The bower of wanton Shrewsbury and love ; Or just as gay, at council, in a ring Of mimic statesmen, and their merry king.

Strana 212 - The above rules apply to all cases of offences in retort not of a stronger class than the example. 3. — If a doubt exist who gave the first offence, the decision rests with the seconds ; if they won't decide, or can't agree, the matter must proceed to two shots, or to a hit, if the challenger require it.
Strana 213 - When the lie direct is the first offence, the aggressor must either beg pardon in express terms, exchange two shots previous to apology, or three shots followed up by explanation, or fire on till a severe hit be received by one party or the other.
Strana 212 - B retorts, that he lies : yet A must make the first apology, because he gave the first offence, and then (after one fire) B may explain away the retort by subsequent apology. RULE 2. But if the parties would rather fight on, then, after two shots each, (but in no case before,) B may explain first, and A apologize afterwards.
