Strana 30 - ... presence. But the guest at his right hand, a happy-looking, red-faced, welldressed man, soon drew his attention towards me. The party to whom I was thus indebted seemed a very joviallooking personage, and appeared to be well known to all hands, and indeed the life of the party, for, like Falstaff, he was not only witty in himself, but the cause of wit in others.
Strana 101 - His gardens next your admiration call, On every side you look, behold the wall! No pleasing intricacies intervene, No artful wildness to perplex the scene: Grove nods at grove, each alley has a brother, And half the platform just reflects the other.
