the English sentence, with difficulty indeed, but having tamed, worked it to high achievements. The great occasion always found him capable, and his treatment of it is not of the sort to be forgotten: witness the picture of the Prince President cowering in an inner chamber during the bloodshed of the Coup d'etat , the short speech of Sir Colin Campbell to his Highlanders before the Great Redoubt (given in the exact manner of Thucydides), or the narrative of the Heavy Brigade's charge at Balaclava, culminating thus "The difference Cheap UGG Boots Sale there was in the temperaments of the two comrade regiments showed itself in the last moments of the onset. The Scots Greys gave no utterance except to a low, eager, fierce moan of rapture the moan of outbursting desire. The Inniskillings. infants erin ugg boots Outlet Online went in with a cheer. With a rolling prolongation of clangour which resulted from the bends of a line now deformed by its speed, the 'three hundred' crashed in upon the front of the column." What I am about to say will, no doubt, be set down to tribal malevolence; but I confess Cheap UGG Boots Sale if Cambridge men appeal to me less at one time than another it is when they begin to talk about their poets. The grievance is an old one, of course at least as old as Mr. Birrell's " Obiter Dicta ": but it has been revived by the little book of verse (" Quo Musa Tendis ") Cheap UGG Boots Sale I have just been reading.
