Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility.

Venice doesn't borrow, she but all magnificently gives.

We profit by that enormously, but to do so we must either be quite off duty or be on it in her service alone.

Such, and so rueful, are these re miniscences; though on the whole, no doubt, one's book, and one's literary effort at large, were to be the better for them.

Strangely fertilising, in the long run, does a wasted effort of attention often prove.

It all depends on how the attention has been cheated, has been squandered.

There are high-handed in solent frauds, and there are insidious sneaking ones. And there is, I fear, even on the most designing artist's part, always witless enough good faith, always anxious enough desire, to fail to guard him against their deceits.
