The Mysteries of London, Vol. II – George W.M. Reynolds, 1846:
THE HISTORY OF AN UNFORTUNATE WOMAN.
The Honourable Miss Enfield was as good as her word. She obtained permission to go out shopping, and also for me to accompany her. It was three o’clock, on a beautiful spring afternoon, when Miss Enfield and myself sallied forth together. ‘The best shops lie in this direction,’ I observed, pointing towards the left. — ‘Oh! no, my dear Miss Hutchinson,’ she said, with a merry laugh: ‘the spot that will suit me is in this direction;’ — and she took the road to London.
