Newark was left behind and the post-chaise-and-four entered on a stretch of flat country which offered little to attract the eye, or occasion remark. It just didn’t seem right to me. We resumed our journey, gentlemen, but the road, instead of improving, became even viler. Men don’t exist. They won’t. I am content.
My sources are; Regency Buck by Georgette Heyer, The Outsiders by SE Hinton, A Masked Ball and other stories by Alexandre Dumas, where we once belonged by Sia Figiel, and Fool’s Fate by Robin Hobb. And I cheated by having two sentences from one book, simply because they were so short and made no sense alone.
