prevent a Duel between Esq. South and Lord Strutt; how, to his great

with Nic.'s favourite Daughter between them; how they both fell upon

Daughter, and break the Esquire's China Ware.

any Two;" or Advice to Dogmatical Politicians exemplified in some

CHAP. XVII.--A Discourse of the delightful Game of Quadrille. How
Lewis Baboon attempted to play a Game Solo in Clubs, and was bested;
how John called Lewis for his King, and was afraid that his own
Partner should have too many tricks; and how the Success and Skill
