Excerpt from Lord Oakburn's Daughters
The omnibus was not given to dashing, however. It drove into High Street by the accustomed Opening, turned short round to the left, and pulled up a few yards further at its usual halting-place, the Red Lion Inn. Mrs. Fitch, the landlady, an active, buxom dame, with a fixed colour in her cheeks and a bustling, genial manner, came hastening out to receive the guests it might have brought.
It had brought only a young lady and a trunk: and the moment Mrs. Fitch cast her eyes on the lady's face, she thought it the most beautiful she had ever looked upon.
