Excerpt from Oldbury, Vol. 1 of 2

Elsie had a strong secret conviction that Grand mamma liked to stand by that furthest garden-bed (uncommanded by any of the house windows) and look out into the road quite as much as she did, per haps a little more; for looking out into the road seemed to be almost the only recreation that poor dear Grandmamma allowed herself; whereas-elsie could be equally happy trundling' her hoop among the dry leaves, or making imaginary houses between the lilac bushes, where Grandmamma could not come.

The dissipation of looking out into the Oldbury main road' was not one, apparently, to which the most ascetic person could reasonably object. The sights which pleased Mrs. Blake and Elsie were of an entirely unexciting and ordinary kind, such as might be seen from the same post of observation at any time, only today the broad white road, fringed on each side by pleasant garden shrubs, was ooded with a brighter than ordinary sunset light, and a few extra pedestrians had come out to enjoy it.
