Sunday Sentence: The Old Nurse’s Story by Elizabeth Gaskell

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

So we went out of that great drawing room, and into another sitting room, and out of that, and then up a great flight of stairs, and along a broad gallery—which was something like a library, having books all down one side, and windows and writing-tables all down the other—till we came to our rooms, which I was not sorry to hear were just over the kitchens; for I began to think I should be lost in that wilderness of a house.
