|John Bartlett (18201905). Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. 1919.|
The original edition (London, 1819, 8vo) had the following as the fourth stanza from the end of Part i., which was omitted in all subsequent editions:
Is it a party in a parlour?
Crammed just as they on earth were crammed,
Some sipping punch, some sipping tea,
But, as you by their faces see,
All silent and all damned. [back]
