The Maiden 1
eg:This book is his maiden effort.
One evening at the end of May a middle-aged man was walking home from Shaston to the village of Marlott in the Vale of Blackmoor．His legs were thin and weak，and he could not walk in a straight line．He had an empty egg-basket on his arm， and his hat was old and worn．After a while he passed an elderly parson riding a grey horse．
eg: This is the Vale of Blackmoor.
eg: I like this shirt, but the collar has worn.
eg: You elderly people are really funny!
‘Good night，’said the man with the basket．
‘Good night，Sir John，’said the parson．
After another step or two the man stopped and turned round to speak to the parson．
eg: "Good night, Sir John, " said the parson.
‘Now，sir，last market-day we met on this road at the same time，and I said “Good night”and you answered“Good night，Sir John，”as you did just now．’“嗯，先生，上次赶集那天，大约也是这个时候，我们在这条路上碰到过的。当时我向您道声‘晚安’，您也和刚才一样回答说‘晚安，约翰爵士’。”
