A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens

This quote was added by peg
It was the year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five. Spiritual revelations were conceded to England at that favoured period, as at this. Mrs. Southcott had recently attained her five-and-twentieth blessed birthday, of whom a prophetic private in the Life Guards had heralded the sublime appearance by announcing that arrangements were made for the swallowing up of London and Westminster.

I stopped. This quote is terribly difficult and I simply could not finish it because of how terrible both my accuracy and WPM was when I neared the end. A good quote but horrifically difficult.
