Sample
JOLLY good beer you have here, Bill," said the Honourable Richard Furlong, contemplating the well-polished pewter mug approvingly. " Glad you like it," Major Baxter replied. " I rather fancy it myself." " You were always fond of your noggin of ale. Indeed, you had quite a pretty taste in booze even before you chucked the Service and became a fully licensed man." " I do my endeavours in my line of life, thank 'ee kindly, sir," Baxter retorted, laughing, They were sitting in a small room used as a semi-private bar in the Black Cygnet, a once-famous coaching inn of the old market town of Hawkesferry. Through the wide open window they could see the sleepy High Street basking in the noon warmth of a cloudless August day. " You like it here ? " Richard asked. " It's really quite amusing," his friend admitted. " A pub is a sort of unofficial exchange and mart for news and views, you know, and since I've been running this place I've found myself taking quite a profound interest in the local births, deaths, marriages and scandals."
