The old giants, Who stood as tall as trees, lov'd little women, Or there's no truth in fable. Thus do I : I love a sober face, a modest eye, A step demure, a mien as grave as virtue.

Strana 26 - Lord what ?" — cried the old banker, aghast. " The Earl of Glastonbury,— the representative of one of the most ancient houses in the kingdom."
