Trang 119 - Garrick was a very good man, the cheerfullest man of his age ; a decent liver in a profession which is supposed to give indulgence to licentiousness ; and a man who gave away, freely, money acquired by himself. He began the world with a great hunger for money ; the son of a half-pay officer, bred in a family, whose study was to make four-pence do as much as others made four-pence halfpenny do.

Trang 140 - At the late Theatre, in Goodman's Fields, this day, will be performed a Concert of Vocal and Instrumental Music, divided into Two Parts. Tickets at three, two and one shilling. Places for the Boxes to be taken at the Fleece Tavern, next the Theatre. NB Between the two parts of the Concert, will be presented, an Historical Play called, The Life and Death of King Richard the Third.
Trang 244 - She left the stage, was called for, and with infinite persuasion was prevailed upon to return. However, she did ; walked forward, and told them she was there ready and willing to perform her character if they chose to permit her ; that the decision was theirs — on or off, just as they pleased, it was a matter of indifference to her. The ' ons ' had it, and all went smoothly afterwards.
