"Some twenty or more years before I matriculated at Oxford, Mr. Palmer,at that time M.P. for Bath, had accomplished two things, very hard to do on our little planet, the Earth, however cheap they may be held by eccentric people in comets: he had invented mail-coaches, and he had married the daughter of a duke."
T.d.Q., 1849.
