Clementina (9781490913032)

  • The landlord, the lady, and Mr. Charles Wogan were all three, it seemed, in luck's way that September morning of the year 1719.

His horse stepped gingerly on for a few yards, stopped, and looked round at his master. Wogan and his horse were on the best of terms. "Is it so bad as that?" said he, and dismounting he gently felt the strained leg. Then he took the bridle in his hand and walked forward, whistling as he walked.Yet the place and the hour were most unlikely to give him succour.

The basin itself was filled with a broad uncoloured light, and lay naked to it and extraordinarily still.
