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

I must make a fortune!” he thought, as he hurried towards Moorgate Street. “One lucky stroke — and four-and-twenty hours shall see me rich again!”
This idea brought a smile to his lips; and, relaxing his pace, he composed his countenance as well as he could ere he entered the office of a wealthy stockbroker in Moorgate Street.
