It may be easily believed that the Earl would feel a sensation of relief, if not of triumph, at this termination to the embarrassments under which he had been labouring ever since, he listened to the oration of the wise Leoninus upon New Years' Day. At last the Queen had formally acquiesced in the action of the States, and in his acceptance of their offer.

John Thornton Kirkland should have been seen and heard as he is remembered by old graduates of Harvard, sitting in the ancient Presidential Chair, on Commencement Day, and calling in his penetrating but musical accents: "Expectatur Oratio in Lingua Latina" or "Vernacula," if the "First Scholar" was about to deliver the English oration. It was a presence not to be forgotten.

I begged him to preserve himself for my funeral oration. He answered cruelly that there was nothing he could refuse me. The Court Travels in Picardy and Flanders. The Boudoir Navy. Madame de Montespan Is Not Invited. The King Relates to Her the Delights of the Journey. Reflections of the Marquise.

The two doctors of law laid the affectionate common-places of the archduke before the States-General, each of them making, moreover, a long and flowery oration in which the same protestations of good will and hopes of future good-fellowship were distended to formidable dimensions by much windy rhetoric.

Even Tom is half afraid of me. I am not changed, I am still Erica; can't you understand how much I want every one now?

"Do you think I would not rather have your sympathy than an oration from any one else! You who were here to the end! You who did everything for for her.
