acceptance speech

Lady Georgianna is most graciously honoured to have been lauded in such a guise.  This shews, viz. that the estimation of other gentlepersons of this art (of wielding the most capricious of pens, that of the virtual variety), is given the highest merit in the judgement thereof. We do aver that Life is but a bubble; yet we raise our glasses with the finest of Topers ever to have made their dwelling on this humble sphere.   Signora.
