Page 150 - France ? said my gentleman, turning quick upon me with the most civil triumph in the world. Strange ! quoth I, debating the matter with myself, That one and twenty miles sailing, for 'tis absolutely no further from Dover to Calais, should give a man these rights I'll look into them : so giving up the argument I went straight to my lodgings, put up half a dozen shirts and a black pair of silk breeches 'the coat I have on...
