We may not measure to the full the depth of this heavenly gift, in our own land ; though still, as we think of it longer, the infinite of that meadow sweetness, Shakspere's peculiar joy, would open on us more and more, yet we have it but in part.
Página 154 - ... could you take a view of this part of the town on a Sunday, you would be shocked indeed ; for then the street is filled with multitudes of these wretches, who, released on that day from employment, spend their time in noise and riot, playing at " chuck," and cursing and swearing in a manner so horrid as to convey to any serious mind an idea of hell rather than any other place.
