Stanhope. Yes, my father's orders, I believe I
must take.
Englishman. Why, hast thou no more spirit,
than to mind an old fellow a thousand miles off?
Stanhope. If I d(m't 5) mind his orders, he
won't 6) mind my draughts.
Englishman. What does the old prig threaten
then ? threatened folks live long ; never mind
Stanhope. No, I can't say that he has ever
threatened me in his life, but I believe I had
best not provoke him.
Englishman. Pooh! you v^ould have one angry
letter from the old fellow, and there would be
and end of it.
Stanhope. You mistake him mightily; he always
does more than he says. lie has never been an-
gry with me yet, that I remember, in his life;
but if I were to provoke him, I am sure he
would never forgive me: he would be coolly im-
movable, and I might beg and pray, and write
my heart out to no purpose.
Englishman. Why then, he is an odd dog,
that's all I can say: and pray, are you to obey
your dry nurse too, this same, what's his name —
Mr. Harte ?
Stanhope. Yes,
Englishman. So he stuffs you all morning with
Greek, and Latin, and logic, and all that. Egad!
I have a dry-nurse too, but I never looked into
•a book with him in my life: I have hot so much
as seen the face of him this week, and don't
care a louse if I never sec him again.
Stanhope. My dry nurse never desires any thing
"of me that is not reasonable, and for my own
good; !»nd therefore I like to be with him.
Englishman. Very sententious and edifying,
upon my word! at tliis rate you will be reckoned
^a very good young man.
Stanhope. Why, that will do me no harm.
