Englishman. Will you be with us to-morrow
in the evening then? We shall be ten with you;
and. have got some excellent good wine; and
we'll 7) be very merry.
Stanhope. I am very much obliged to you, but
I am engaged for all the evening, to-morrow;
first at Cardinal Albani's, and then to sup at the
Venetian Ambassadress's.
Englishman. How the devil can you like being
always with these foreigners? I never go amongst
them, with all their formalities and ceremonies.
I am never easy in company with them, and I
don't know why, but I am ashamed.
Stanhope. I am neither ashamed nor afraid: I

Stanhope. Have you ever conversed with them?
Englishman. No. I never conversed with them ;
but I have been sometimes in their company,
though much against my will.

hurt; which is, probably, more than you can
say of the women you do converse with.

Stanhope. Tastes are different, you know, and
every man follows his own.
Englishman. That's true; but thine's 9) a de-
vilish odd one. Stanhope. All morning with thy
dry-nurse; all the evening in formal fine company ;
and all day long afraid of old Daddy in England.
Thou art a queer fellow, and I am afraid there's
nothing to be made of thee.
Stanhope. I am afraid so too.
Englishman. Well then; good night to you;
