Seite 175 - Trim ! said my uncle Toby, I have a project in my head, as it is a bad night, of wrapping myself up warm in my roquelaure, and paying a visit to this poor gentleman.
Seite 179 - In the second place, for which,' indeed, thou hast the same excuse,' continued my uncle Toby, — when thou offeredst him whatever was in my house, thou shouldst have offered him my house too.
