Excerpt from The Diverting History of John Gilpin

Suddenly, into the midst of these dispiriting circumstances enters the sprightly figure of a lady.

Her vivacity, her dress, her natural graces, had a something unaccustomed about them, for Cowper's unsocial eyes at any rate. They came, it was rumoured in the village, of the lady's quondam residence in France. A little prestige was added, in this local gossip, by the modest title of Lady Austen, widow of the late Sir Robert.
