So tomorrow we disappear into the unknown. This account I am transmitting down the river by canoe, and it may be our last word to those who are interested in our fate.

Presently she came back up the road again, her head haughtily in the air, not deigning to take any further notice of her silent attendant. ~ The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist

What did I mean by asking questions? He had a fine flow of language, and his adjectives were very vigorous." ~ The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist
