I know I shall thereby oppose myself to your power, but I must tell you, you are generally abhorred, considered the Attila, the Sylla, of the age, the two-footed plague, that, walks about to fill peaceful abodes with miseries and family mournings.

Barneveld paused in his writing, took the glasses from his eyes, and looked Sylla in the face. "Well, Sylla," he said very calmly, "will you in these my last moments lay down the law to me as to what I shall write to my wife?" He then added with a half-smile, "Well, what is expected of me?" "We have no commission whatever to lay down the law," said van Leeuwen.

That the Misses Chipchase should meet the Grange party and attach themselves to it was but natural.

The same Doctor Junius a year afterwards happened to dine, in company of one of his fellow-commissioners, with Attorney-General Sylla at Utrecht, and took occasion to ask them why it was supposed that Barneveld had been hanging his head towards Spain, as not one word of that stood in the sentence.
