Broken resolution
left much unsettled
least finished still
great variety faced
fault of approbation
specific critics lost
declarations wait
amuse difficulties
of matter inherent
all means of course
preserve proportions
touch inimitable spirit
other solutions out of
character, endured
until the letter arrived
eloquent, unaffected
bearing good sense
of its authorís powers
a favorable answer
would settle questions
yet ambiguous points
leave more in doubt
extending pained hours.
