Stanhope. Yes, my father's orders, I believe
I must take.
Englishman. Why! have you no more spirit,
than to mind an old fellow a thousand miles off?
Stanhope. If I don't 5) mind his orders, he
won't 6) mind my drafts.
Englishman. What! does the old prig threaten
then? Threatened folks livelong; nevermind
Stanhope. jVo, 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 would have one angry
letter from the old fellow, and there would be
an end of it.
Stanhope. You mistake him mightily; he always
does more than he says. He 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-
moveable, and 1 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 not so much
as seen the face of him this week, and don't
care a louse if I never see him again.
Stanhope. My dry nurse never desires any thing
of me that is not reasonable, and for my own
good; and therefore I like to be with him.
Englishman. Very sententious and edifying,
upon my word! at this rate you will be reckoned
a very good young man.
Stanhope. Why, that will do me no harm.
