Description

Excerpt from A Prose Translation of Goethe's Hermann and Dorothea You have done well, my good wife, in send ing our son out there with old linen and some thing to eat and drink, that he might minister to the wants of these unfortunates, for giving is the peculiar function and prerogative of the rich. How the young fellow can drive! How excellent ly he manages the firey steeds! What a fine appear ance our new carriage makes. There are com fortable seats in it for four, with the coachman on the box. But this time the boy drove alone. How gracefully the little carriage rolled around the cor ner' Thus spoke the host of the Golden Lion to his wife as they were comfortably seated by the gateway ot'their hotel facing the public square.
