Branwell chose John Bull, Astley Cooper, and Leigh Hunt; Emily, Walter Scott, Mr. Lockhart, Johnny Lockhart ; Anne, Michael Sadler, Lord Bentinck, Sir Henry Halford.

Here our conversation was interrupted by the, to us, dismal sound of the clock striking seven, and we were summoned off to bed.
Sivu 138 - Shakspeare and Byron. Both these were great men, and their works are like themselves. You will know how to choose the good, and to avoid the evil; the finest passages are always the purest, the bad are invariably revolting; you will never wish to read them over twice. Omit the comedies of Shakspeare and the " Don Juan," perhaps the

If he perceived any one inattentive to his prayers, "he would stop and rebuke the offender, and not go on till he saw every one on their knees.
