"made a place for themselves under the most untoward conditions"
"my words with inauspicious thunderings shook heaven"
"a dead and ominous silence prevailed"
"a by-election at a time highly unpropitious for the Government"
On that Trees Top an inauspicious Crow Foretold some ill to happen.

I begin this inauspicious Work, which my ill Stars and you have assign'd me.
