Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Let wealth and commerce, laws and learning, die,
But leave us still our old nobility.
Lord John Manners.—England’s Trust, Part III. Line 227.

As the soldiers bore dead bodies by,
He call’d them untaught knaves, unmannerly,
To bring a slovenly unhandsome corse
Betwixt the wind and his nobility.
Shakespeare.—King Henry IV., Part I. Act I. Scene 3.
