'The younger brother
had been a traveller in many countries, and had made his pilgrimage through life alone.
The king's younger brother
struck the table with his hand, exclaiming, "Ah!
A pale, delicate, effeminate boy, who might have been taken for my master's younger brother
, so strong was the resemblance: but there was a sickly peevishness in his aspect that Edgar Linton never had.
Alexander, the younger brother
, was sickly, clever, fond of books and drawing, and full of satirical remarks.
Fortunately he had a younger brother
who was more promising.
'Thy cousin's younger brother
owes my father's cousin something yet on his daughter's marriage-feast,' said the woman crisply.
"I am sorry I told you," said Sergey Ivanovitch, shaking his head at his younger brother
'Well,' says the younger brother
, 'but your neighbours, as you call them, may be even with you, for beauty will steal a husband sometimes in spite of money, and when the maid chances to be handsomer than the mistress, she oftentimes makes as good a market, and rides in a coach before her.'
She turned away from him and glanced at her younger brother

Henry, he had increased his pecuniary resources by his own enterprise and ingenuity; with this difference, that his speculations were connected with the Arts.

Seditions also which arise from different causes will differ from each other; for sometimes a revolution is brought about by the rich who have no share in the administration, which is in the hands of a very few indeed: and this happened at Massilia, Ister, Heraclea, and other cities; for those who had no share in the government ceased not to raise disputes till they were admitted to it: first the elder brothers, and then the younger also: for in some places the father and son are never in office at the same time; in others the elder and younger brother
: and where this is observed the oligarchy partakes something of a free state.
He knew very well that he was the proprietor or appropriator of the money, which, according to all proper calculation, ought to have fallen to his younger brother
, and he had, we may be sure, some secret pangs of remorse within him, which warned him that he ought to perform some act of justice, or, let us say, compensation, towards these disappointed relations.
I am sometimes disposed to repent that I did not let Charles buy Vernon Castle, when we were obliged to sell it; but it was a trying circumstance, especially as the sale took place exactly at the time of his marriage; and everybody ought to respect the delicacy of those feelings which could not endure that my husband's dignity should be lessened by his younger brother
