Charles Dickens/Oliver Twist

„Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons I will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born, on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.”

Collins, 1981.
Erstveröffentlichung Richard Bentley, 1838.
