Beschreibung:

pubOne.info present you this new edition. When I lived in the country, - which was a long time ago, - our nearest neighbours were the Luscombes. They were very great personages in the country indeed, and the family were greatly "e;respected"e;; though not, so far as I could discern, for any particular reason, except from their having been there for several generations. People are supposed to improve, like wine, from keeping- even if they are rather "e;ordinary"e; at starting; and the Luscombes, at the time I knew them, were considered quite a "e;vintage"e; family. They had begun in Charles II. 's time, and dated their descent from greatness in the female line. That they had managed to keep a great estate not very much impaired so long was certainly a proof of great cleverness, since there had been many spend-thrifts among them; but fortunately there had been a miser or two, who had restored the average, and their fortunes.
