Englishman. Will you be with us to-morrow
> n the evening then ? We shall be ten with you ;
and have got some excellent good wine; and
we'll 7) be very merry.
Stanhope. lam very much obliged to yon, 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
am very easy with them; they are very easy with
mc; I get the language, and I see their characters,
by conversing with them; and that is what we
are sent abroad for. Is it not?
Englishman. I hate your modest women's com-

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.
Stanhope. But at least they have done you no
hurt; which is, probably, more than you can
say of the women you do converse with.
Englishman. That's true, I own, but —
Stanhope. Tastes are different, you know, and
every man follows his own.
Englishman. That's true; but thine's 9) a
devilish 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 yon;
