Eliza, your Bardic interpolations most germane, and much appreciated. But as to putting up my weapon: what warrant does that impertinent youth imagine himself to have to address me in such truculent & patronising tones: impudent little upstart as he is!

Not but what that is probably just such another hyperbolical overstatement as that to which it is in itas turn riposte; but I am as entitled to such hissiphitz as I may please to indulge in as is he -- and to calligraph such according to my own taste without the leave of him!
