Harte, every morning, and passing your evenings
with the best company of Rome, observing their
manners and forming your own ; and I will sup-

Mr. Harte.
Englishman. Then, what the devil! do you do

Stanhope. We study different things: we read,
we converse.
Englishman. Very pretty amusement indeed!
