Yes--in this dark press behind the stair, Where you throw old besoms, boots,and shoes.- Come here, and tell me what is the news?-- Your opinion of things in general- Your stories? I know you've got ſeveral. JULY. My stars !--In that nasty black box there! Good bye Just ass !I've no time to spare. Sir, you sit with so much case and grace, Company would but confuse the place. Sir John. My black haired beauty, with skin like snow; With plump cheeks, red as roses in blow; With fit corpus, as sleek as a 'mole; O, do not leave me here in this hole ! Better than money's a friend in court, Take pity and you'll get favour fort!' Private motives are always my guides, And for you, right or wrong, I ll decide.
