Página 262 - THE COUNTRY : convinced as he is that nothing would tend more to throw light on the manners and tastes of the great body of the people during the various stages of Scottish improvement.
Página 350 - During the liberation war, the name of Louisa became a watchword in favour of national independence, while her patriotism proved a tutelar genius to the Prussian army.
Página 350 - Art and affection have here united to gain a victory over the forgetfulness of the grave ; and it is not too much to say, that they are entitled to the laurel.
