Stran xxxiv - HISTORICAL anecdotes of heraldry and chivalry, tending to shew the origin of many English and foreign coats of arms, circumstances and customs.
Stran 112 - Alfieri," together with his own poems, show him to have been an accomplished scholar. Then, not much above a mile from Calgarth, at his beautiful creation of Elleray, lived Professor Wilson, of whom I need not speak.

Stran 105 - I sent to the Monthly Magazine (1797), three mock Sonnets, in ridicule of my own Poems, and Charles Lloyd's, and Lamb's, etc. etc. exposing that affectation of unaffectedness, of jumping and misplaced accent, in common-place epithets, flat lines forced into poetry by italics, (signifying how well and mouthishly the author would read them) puny pathos, etc. etc. The instances were almost all taken from myself, and Lloyd, and Lamb. I signed them ' Nehemiah Higginbotham.' I think they may do good to...
Stran 315 - Charlotte," her mother replied, " Belongs to no station or place ; And nothing's so vulgar as folly and pride, Though dressed in red slippers and lace.
