The Mysteries of London, Vol. II – George W.M. Reynolds, 1846:


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.
