"All the way as he walk'd his Mind was heavy, and oppress'd; and he frequently said to his Brother who walk'd with him, that he was certain he was going to London to be surpriz'd: and so strong was the foreboding Impression upon his Mind, that he once stop'd at Hornsey, and endeavoured to get a Lodging, intending to send his Brother to London to see if nothing had happen'd there to give him any Alarm."
— Defoe, Daniel (1660?-1731)
