Excerpt from The Adventures of a Gentleman in Search of a Horse
My third attempt was somewhat more promising. A very respectable stable-keeper, with whom I had had former transactions, introduced me to an old hunter of his acquaintance. I must own that I en tertain great distrust of your hunters converted into hacks! But the introduction was good; the horse was gay; and the tout ensemble favorable; he had but one fault, so far as a day's trial could discover. He would neither pass nor be passed, either by stage, omnibus, or hackney-acoach! A matter of not the slightest consequence in Leicestershire; but rather inconvenient in Oxford street.
