Seite 72 - Some say, compar'd to Bononcini, That Mynheer Handel's but a ninny ; Others aver that he to Handel Is scarcely fit to hold a candle.' Strange all this difference should be Twixt Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
Seite 539 - Society, and to maintain order. His decision in all questions of precedence among speakers, and on all disputes which may arise during the meeting, to be absolute. In the absence of the President or Vice- Presidents, it shall be competent for the members present to elect a chairman.
