George Canning

British Prime Minister in 1827, Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1807-09
Whene'er with haggard eyes I view
This dungeon that I'm rotting in,
I think of those companions true
Who studied with me at the U-
Niversity of Gottingen.

Bleak blows the blast--your hat has got a hole in it.
So have your breeches.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Black's not so black--nor white so very white.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
