You see that my lord archbishop is going very fast — you ought to warn him of it, not only as his bosom friend, on whose sincerity he relies, but lest some blunt fellow should anticipate you, and bolt out the truth in an offensive manner. In that case you know the consequence ; you would be struck out of his will, where no doubt you have a more convertible bequest than the licentiate Sedillo's library."...

Nevertheless, to conceal no part of my weakness from my monitor, there is another reward on which my heart is intent, a reward which the seraphic scrupulousness of my virtue to little purpose condemns as too carnal: a literary reputation for a sublime and elegant style.

41 페이지 - I know what you mean," replied he. " You think I am going downhill, do not you ? Out with it at once. It is your opinion that it is time for me to think of retiring ? " "I should never have had the presumption," said I, " to deliver myself with so little reserve, if it had not been your grace's express command. I act in entire obedience to your grace's orders ; and I most obsequiously implore your grace not to take offense at my boldness.

The licentiate, who had a specimen in his pocket, showed me a sheet which I admired very much ; it had all the regularity of a writing master's copy. In looking over this model of penmanship, an idea occurred to me. I begged Garcias to leave this paper in my hands, saying that I might be able to do something with it which should turn out to his advantage ; that I could not explain myself at that moment, but would...
37 페이지 - Leyva, had but a mortification taken place in the back of the scarecrow which had frightened me away. Don Ferdinand was not insensible to the emotions that agitated me, and felt himself so much obliged by them, that he took his leave with the assurance of the whole family always taking an anxious interest in my fate. Two months after this worthy gentleman had left us, in the luxuriant harvest of my highest favor, a lowering storm came suddenly over the episcopal palace ; the archbishop had a stroke...
