第 lxxx 頁 - Oh ! ever thus, from childhood's hour, I've seen my fondest hopes decay ; I never loved a tree or flower, But 'twas the first to fade away. I never nursed a dear gazelle, To glad me with its soft black eye, • But when it came to know me well, And love me, it was sure to die...
第 101 頁 - I have no idea that he will ever acquire the reputation of a great statesman. His views are not sufficiently profound or enlarged for that; his celebrity in the House of Commons will chiefly depend on his readiness and dexterity as a debater, in conjunction...
第 71 頁 - Fakrash could not propose to marry me to some one who has a husband already," he thought. " Still, she may be a widow ! " To his relief, however, the conclusion ran thus ; " Seyf-el-Mulook lived with Bedeea-el-Jemal a most pleasant and agreeable life . . . until they were visited by the terminator of delights and the separator of companions.

Perhaps, therefore, it is still a ruin ; and if it is, I would advise you by all means to visit it, as it must have been much improved by this fortunate incident.
