The Rivals I.6
Here, my dear Lucy, hide these books. Quick, quick!—
Fling Peregrine Pickle under the toilet—throw Roderick Random into the closet—put
The Innocent Adultery into The Whole Duty of Man—thrust Lord Aimworth under the
sofa—cram Ovid behind the bolster—there—put The Man of Feeling into your
pocket—so, so—now lay Mrs. Chapone in sight, and leave Fordyce’s Sermons open
on the table.
