Last Sunday morning at six o’clock in the evening as I was sailing over the tops of the mountains in my little boat, I met two men on horseback riding on one mare: So I asked them, “Could they tell me whether the little old woman was dead yet who was hanged last Saturday week for drowning herself in a shower of feathers?” They said they could not positively inform me, but if I went to Sir Gammer Vans he could tell me all about it. “But how am I to know the house?” said I. “Ho, ‘t is easy enough,” said they, “for ‘t is a brick house, built entirely of flints, standing alone by itself in the middle of sixty or seventy others just like it.”
“Oh, nothing in the world is easier,” said I.
