Excerpt from Good Words for 1885

There was really some sort of logic in this 3 the poor man had at least driven as far ... as he could in the desired direction, and perhaps concluded that the stately pile before him comprised within itself a sufficient number of tenements to make up the requisite amount.
While Hester was debating in her mind as to which of her few London friends she should apply in this emergency, whether to Lady Buttermere who lived comparatively near, or to Mrs. \vest in Bayswater, who though more removed as to distance, was nearer to her in social relation, and while the cabman was regarding her from his box with sidelong composure - for the difficulty was none of his - she saw a friendly face pass by.
