Página 303 - Rolla made a fine speech with such logic and grammar, As must sure raise the envy of Counsellor Garrow ; It would sell for five pounds were it brought to the hammer. For it raised all Peru against valiant Pizarro. Four acts are tol lol, but the fifth's my delight, Where history's trac'cl with the pen of a Varro, And Elvira in black, and Alonzo in white, Put an end to the piece by killing Pizarro.
