Сторінка 208 - Mr. D'Israeli's appearance and manner were very singular. His dress also was peculiar: ,it had much of a theatrical aspect. His black hair was long and flowing, and he had a most ample crop of it. His gesture was abundant: he often appeared as if trying with what celerity he could move his body from one side to another, and throw his hands out and draw them in again.
