"Anima mia," said the pupil of Machiavelli, disguising in the tenderest words the cruellest intentions, for one of his most cherished Italian proverbs was to the effect that there is no getting on with a mule or a woman unless you coax them, "Anima mia, soul of my being, you have already seen that Violante mopes herself to death here." "She, poor child! Oh, no!"

But there is no disguising the fact, Mr. Kurtz has done more harm than good to the Company. He did not see the time was not ripe for vigorous action. Cautiously, cautiously that's my principle. We must be cautious yet. The district is closed to us for a time. Deplorable! Upon the whole, the trade will suffer. I don't deny there is a remarkable quantity of ivory mostly fossil.

Among other things he was an inimitable hand at disguising himself, as many a wretched criminal now knows to his cost. Even I, who know him so well, have been taken in by him.

On my return to Athens I raised money enough to get a return ticket to the Turkish capital, and had an immediate audience of the grand vizier, to whom I stated frankly, and without in the least disguising the faults committed by his government, the condition of the island as I saw it, and the remedies necessary for the restoration of its prosperity.

All day it had rained, but now, as night fell and Janet went homeward, the white mist from the river was creeping stealthily over the city, disguising the familiar and sordid landmarks. These had become beautiful, mysterious, somehow appealing.

My brother had begun to print a newspaper, "The New England Courant," the second that appeared in America. Some of his friends thought it not likely to succeed, one newspaper being enough for America; yet at this time there are not less than five-and-twenty. To this paper I began to contribute anonymously, disguising my hand, and putting my MSS. at night under the door of the printing-house.

For the rest of that day, the persons in the stationer's employment had a hard time of it with their master in the shop. Something had upset Old Ronald. He ordered the shutters to be put up earlier that evening than usual. There was no disguising it from himself; his wife's behaviour at parting had made him uneasy.

On the contrary, with much oddity and vulgarity of manner, with a vanity which he made much more ridiculous by disguising it now and then under a thin veil of humility, and devoid as he was of all the advantages of a learned education, Mr. Jarvie's conversation showed tokens of a shrewd, observing, liberal, and, to the extent of its opportunities, a well-improved mind.

We cast our eyes over the crowd, and soon saw Fred, holding a conversation with a soldier, whom he was endeavoring to bribe to get writing materials, so that he could indite a few lines to us before he left. "Step this way, my man," I said, disguising my voice, and addressing my friend. He looked somewhat astonished, but as he could not see my face, he did not know me.

Disguising his growing uneasiness that he might not discourage his followers who were now full of elation at having reached the foot of the hills he led on again in haste, though there seemed to be no need of haste. Both Hobbo and young , indeed, were for staying a while and sleeping in the shade of an overhanging rock.
