"Let not the levity of frothy wit--nor the absurdity of fools break in upon your happier principles--your dependence upon the Deity--address the Almighty with fervor--with love and simplicity--carry his laws in your heart--and command both worlds;--but I meant mere fatherly advice, and I have wrote a sermon."
— Sancho, Charles Ignatius (1729-1780)
(II.xxiii, pp. 56-7; pp. 158-9 in Carretta)
