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.
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.
