On this the whole comfort of shooting depends. Upon these grounds I contend that, for all kinds of shooting therefore there is nothing equal to the Russian, or half-bred...
358. oldal - Let not the people, therefore, listen to those who are the constant enemies of all public joys ; let them be assured that the object of the peaceful festival is to give to all ranks and orders a grateful occasion to indulge in that full...
253. oldal - Emily, A ship is floating in the harbour now, A wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow; There is a path on the sea's azure floor, No keel has ever ploughed that path before...
