of the journey, the snow began to fall pretty diiickly. The






postillion, however, proceeded on his long journey for a good






many miles, without expressing doubt or hesitation. It was






not until the night was completely set in, that he intimated






his apprehensions whether he was in the right road. The






increasing snow rendered this intimation rather alarming, for






as it drove full in the lad's face, and also lay whitening all






around him, it served in two different ways to confuse his






knowledge of the country, and to diminish the chance of his






recovering the right track. Brown then himself got out and






looked round, not, it may be well imagined, from any better






hope than that of seeing some houses at which he might






make incfuiry. But none appeared he could only tell the






lad to drive steadily on. The road on which they were, ran






through plantations of considerable extent and depth, and






the traveller therefore conjectured that there must be some






gentleman's house at no great distance. At length, after






struggling wearily on for about a mile, the posT>boy stopped,

OUR traveller hired a chaise at a place where he parted from
Dinmoiit, with the object of proceeding to Kippletringan,
to induire into the Htate of the old family at Woxi bourne,
before he should venture to make his presence in the country
known to Miss Mannering. The stage was a very long one of
eighteen or twenty miles, and the road lay across the country.
To add to the inconveniences of the journey, the snow began
to fall pretty cfuickly. The postillion, however, proceeded on
his journey for a good many miles, without expressing doubt
or hesitation. It was not until the night was completely ttet
in, that he intimated his apprehensions whether he was in the
correct road. The increasing snow rendered thin intimation
rather alarming, for as it drove full in the lad's face, and lay
whitening all around him, it served in two different ways to
confuse his knowledge of the country, and also to diminish the
chance of his recovering the right track. Brown then himself
got out .mil looked round, not, it may be well imagined, from
any better hope than that of seeing some house at which he
might make iiitfuiry. But none appeared he could therefore
only tell the lad to drive steadily on. The road on which they
were ran through plantations of considerable extent and depth,

and the traveller therefore conjectured that there must be some
gentleman's mansion at no great distance. At length, after
struggling wearily on for about a mile, the posVboy stopped,
and protested his horses would not budge a foot farther; "but
he saw," he said, "a light among the trees, which must proceed
from a house; the only way was to intfuire the road there."
Accordingly, he dismounted, heavily encumbered with a long
greatcoat, and a pair of big baits which might have rivalled in
thickness the seven-fold shield of Ajax. As in this guise he
was plodding forth upon his voyage of discovery, Brown's
impatience prevailed, and, jumping out of the carriage, be told
the lad to stop where he was, by the horses, and he would him-
self go to the house a command which the driver most joyfully
obeyed. Our traveller groped along the side of the enclosure
from which the light glimmered, in order to find some mode of
approaching in that direction, and after proceeding for some

leading into the plantation, which in that place was of great
extent. This promised to lead to the light which was the object
