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 don't mind his orders, he won't mind
my draughts.
Englisiiman. What does the old prig threaten then?
threatened folks live long; never mind threats.
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 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 angry with me
yet, tjiat I remember, in his life: but if I were to pro-
voke him, I am sure he would never forgive me: he
would be coolly immoveable, 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 drynurse 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. Well, 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 bit, if I never see him again.
Stanhope. My drynurse never desires any thing of me
that is not reasonable, and for my own good; and there-
fore 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
Stanhope. Why, that will do me no harm.
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 be very merry.
