Our studious youth are so in love with the book, seize upon it so eagerly, handle it so constantly, that your father has had repeatedly Twenty select colloquies book print it, and I to enrich it with new additions. Tho' Erasmus is so well known, especially to those versed Twenty select colloquies book the Latin Tongue, that there seems to be but little Occasion to say any Thing in his Commendation; yet since I have taken upon me to make him an English-man, give me Leave to say, that in my Opinion, he as well deserves this Naturalization, as any modern Foreigner whose Works are in Latin, as well for the Usefulness of the Matter of his Colloquies, as the Pleasantness of Style, and Elegancy of the Latin. His mode of judging is monkish. Let us take then the case of all others most favourable to Mr. In the mean Time Johannes Frobenius, a famous Printer, having printed many of his Works at Basil in Switzerland, and being much taken with the Elegancy of his Printing, and the Neatness of his Edition, he went thither, pretending that he undertook that Journey for the Performance of some Vow he had made; he was kindly entertain'd by him, and publish'd several Books there, and dedicated this his Book of Colloquies to Frobenius's Son, and resided till the Mass had been put down there by the Reformers.

John Wesley and the Peninsular War were subjects of a very different kind, subjects which required all the qualities of a philosophic historian. But he has never failed so conspicuously as in the work before us; except, indeed in the wretched Vision of Judgement. He had Twenty select colloquies book yet taken the Habit, but had travelled to Italy, and came back without making any great Improvements in Learning. We cannot suppose that he would recommend popular election; for that is merely an appeal to public opinion. All his Brothers were married but himself; and according to the Superstition of those Times, the old People had a mind to consecrate him to God, being a tenth Child, and his Brothers lik'd the Motion well enough, because by that Means they thought they should have a sure Friend, where they might eat and drink, and be merry upon Occasion. It would be scarcely possible for a man of Mr.

Erasmus took his first Taste of solid Learning from some of his Playfellows, who being older than Twenty select colloquies book, were under the Instruction of Zinthius: And afterwards he sometimes heard Hegius; but that was only upon holy Days, on which he read publickly, and so rose to be in the third Class, and made a very good Proficiency: He is said to have had so happy a Memory, as to be able to repeat all Terence and Horace by Heart. If it is an evil, then there is necessary evil in the universe: if it is not, why should the poor be delivered from it? The only opponents to whom the Laureate gives quarter are those in whom he finds something of his own character reflected. If it did not produce these, it would be no calamity. Southey call upon us to believe that it is in the hands of men who will spend it less liberally or less judiciously? A fundholder, we will suppose, spends dividends amounting to five hundred pounds a year; and his ten nearest neighbours pay fifty pounds each to the taxgatherer, for the purpose of discharging the interest of the national debt.

The trimmed corners and new imprint suggests that the Remainder Centre was actually reprinting the Twenty select colloquies book, rather than binding leftover sheets. No work of this sort can be profitable to private speculators, unless the public be willing to pay for the use of it.

Of what avail is it to Twenty select colloquies book his name and surname, which he himself does not desire to have suppressed? London: I believe, if the cook were to set burnt meat on the dinner—table, he would next day bawl out in the course of his sermon that she was suspected of heresy.

He shews it likewise to have been his Opinion, as to the Reliques of Christ, and he and she Saints, that he judg'd the Worship of them a vain and foolish Thing, and believ'd no Virtue to be in any of them, nay, that the most, if not all of them, were false and counterfeit. Remainder Centre Ltd.

The half-title page: The title page. It carries on controversy, not with reasons, but with threats and bribes. I think not. It is not strange that, when one enthusiast makes the picturesque the test of political good, another should feel inclined to proscribe altogether the pleasures of taste and imagination.

Southey, when he takes up his pen, changes his nature as much as Captain Shandy, when he girt on his sword. He had also a Companion that was treacherous to him, and his old Companion his Ague stuck close to him; but all these would not make a monastick Life go down with him; till at last, by meer Accident, he went to pay a Visit at a Monastery of the same Order at Emaus or Steyn near Goude, where he found one Cornelius, who had been his Chamber-fellow at Daventer.

Southey guilty. Therefore he who speaks of princes of the Church, does not exclude Christ, but includes Him along with the Apostles, and the successors of the Apostles, in the same manner as he who names the principal members of the body does not exclude the head.

But Mr. Southey says that they are, paternal, if a government were necessarily as much superior in wisdom to a people as the most foolish father, for a time, is to the most intelligent child, and if Twenty select colloquies book government loved a people as fathers generally love their children.

Let us take the form of government which he most admires and regrets, the government of England in the time of Charles the First. But, as manners now are, I think it a holier work to dissuade men altogether from such Vows than to urge to the making of them.

Let us take that form of religion which he holds to be the purest, the system of the Arminian part of the Church of England. The little book has increased to the fair size of a volume. Sir Thomas tells Mr. Much more might be said on this subject. Descriptive and lyrical, the poem references women of mythology, boasting that no beauty can match that of the woman he writes to lovingly about.
