"By the time he had reached the Square, and was walking along the pavement which led to the baronet's he had brought his reasoning on the subject to such a point, that the conclusion, by every rule of logic, should have led him to a thorough indifference in his approaches to a fellow-mortal, whether that fellow-mortal was possessed of six or six thousand pounds a year. It is probable, however, that the premises had been improperly formed: for it is certain, that when he approached the great man's door he felt his heart agitated by an unusual palpitation."
-- Henry MacKenzie, The Man of Feeling, 1771
