Well, Viscount, there will be in my court-yard this evening a good travelling britzka
, with four post-horses, in which one may rest as in a bed.
Cattle-pens follow, holding sheep, swine, donkeys, and poultry; then came an open platform with a broken britzka
, followed by a curious-looking nondescript one horse vehicle, containing a fat man in a low-crowned hat, and a versatio or reversible coat, with the preferable side outwards.
In the britzka
sat a gentleman, not handsome, but also not bad-looking, neither too fat nor too thin; you cannot say he is old, yet neither is he all that young.
You held the reins and we were riding, you and me, in a one-horse britzka
, for a visit to the big village by the forest.
