- HIS marriage is the devil—I have sold my liberty, - ease and pleasure; and in exchange have got a wife, a very wife!—Ambition began my misery, and matrimony has completed it—But have not other men of quality wives, Hay, fashionable wives, and yet are happy —Then why am not I ? Because I am a fool, a singular fool, who amotroubled with vulgar feelings, and aukward delicacies, though I was born a nobleman, know the world, and keep the best company.
Bol. What, in the dumps, brother Flimmap; Flim. Aye, brother, deeply so. Bol. Why. what's the matter? Flim. I am married. Bol. And to my sister—If she wrongs you, I'll do vou justice; and if you wrong her, I'll cut your throat– that's all. - Flim. My dear admiral, I know your friendship, and your honour, and can trust both ; I have sent for you and your \'ol II. A brother
brother Fripperel, as my wife's nearest relations, to open
my heart to you, and to beg your advice and assistance,
Bol. He advice you ! what can he advice you about I he
was bred to nothing but to pick his teeth, and dangle after
a court; so, unless you have a coat to lace, a feather to
choose, or a monkev to buy, Fripperel can't assist you.
F/im. But he is the brother of my wife, admiral.
Bol. So much the worse for her and you too, perhaps
—If she has listened to him, I shan’t be surprized that you
have a bad time of it! such fellows as he, who call them-
selves fine gentlemen, forsooth, corrupt the morals of a
whole nation. -
Flim. Indeed, admiral, you are too severe.
Bol. Indeed, my lord Flimnap, I speak the truth—
Time was when we had as little vice here in Lilliput as
any where; but since we imported politeness and fashions
from Blefuscu, we have thought of nothing but being fine
gentlemen; and a fine gentleman in my dictionary, stands
for nothing but impertinence and affectation, without any
one virtue, sincerity, or real civility.
Flim. But, dear brother, contain yourself.
Bol. , 'Zounds! I can't—We shall be undone by our po-
liteness—Those cursed Blefuscudians have been polishing
us to destroy us. While we kept our own rough man-
ners, we were more then a match for 'em; but since they have
made us fine gentlemen—we don't fight the better for’t
I can assure you.
Enter FRIPPEREL. Frip. What, is my dear brother and magnanimous ad" miral firing a broadside against those wretches who wear clean shirts and wash their faces 2 eh? Bol, I wou’d always fire upon those, good brother, who
dare not sbew their faces, when their king and country want.
Flim. My dear brothers, let us not wander from the sub-
ject of or meeting—I have sent to you for your advice and
assistance in an affair that nearly concerns me as a man, a
nobleman, and the father of a family. - -
Frip. What can possibly, my dear lord, disturb your tran;
quility, while you have fortune to purchase pleasures, and
he, ith to enjoy 'em 2 - -
