To translate this comment:
“Soon after my return from Leyden, I was recommended, by my good master Mr. Bates, to be surgeon to the Swallow, Captain Abraham Pannell commander; with whom I continued three years and a half, making a voyage or two into the Levant, and some other parts. When I came back, I resolved to settle in London, to which Mr. Bates, my master, encouraged me, and by him I was recommended to several patients. I took part of a small house in the Old Jury; and being advised to alter my condition, I married Mrs. Mary Burton, second daughter to Mr. Edmund Burton, hosier, in Newgate-street, with whom I received four hundred pounds for a portion.”
I’m not sure what it means, but I know it’s spam mail (it had a bunch of links to sites). I just want to know.
Speaking of the British, they sent some SAS guys on a diplomatic mission. They landed in Lybia in the middle of the night, armed to the teeth and carrying explosives (gernades). Of course, they then proceeded to get captured by rebel forces. Which was good because that was who they wanted to contact. Parliment got all up in the Foreign Secretary’s face about it. And then Monty Python started playing in the background while they talked about it on the Parliment floor.
William Hague said this:
“They were withdrawn yesterday after a serious misunderstanding (guffaws from the floor) about their role leading to their temporary detention.”
Labour’s Denis MacShane said this:
“If a new person were to move into the Foreign Secretary’s neighborhood, I wonder if he would go over and introduce himself properly, or climb over the fence in the middle of the night? (much laughter from the floor)”
