Stranica 251 - Lordships — which was unnecessary, but there are many whom it may be needful to remind — that an advocate, by the sacred duty which he owes his client, knows, in the discharge of that office, but one person in the world, THAT CLIENT AND NONE OTHER.

Stranica 59 - and I must direct your passport home to Germany. I will direct it to Florence : your minister there may direct it back to Rome. Or I will direct it to any place in Tuscany which you may choose ; for through Tuscany you must travel in order to reach Germany.
Stranica 49 - I could not make him a more welcome birthday present than a sketch of the geography of eastern countries, or translations from voyages and travels, executed as might be expected from a child.

But the influence of a very tender and anxious mother upon my physical training and constitution thwarted his plan almost as soon as it was formed. In consequence of her opposition, my father afterwards gave...
Stranica 63 - He probably thought that a person in my situation ought to be glad to receive an invitation of this kind ; and, in fact, any one might feel gratified in being asked to dine with him, especially in Rome. When I saw that my motive for declining so flattering an invitation was not understood, I said, throwing a glance at my dress, 'Really, Sir, I am not in a state to dine with an Excellency.
