Les incipits : ELIOT, Silas Marner.

In the days when the spinning-wheels hummed busily in the farm-houses — and even great ladies, clothed in silk and thread-lace, had their toy spinning-wheels of polished oak — there might be seen in districts far away among the lanes, or deep in the bosom of the hills, certain pallid, undersized men, who, by the side of the brawny country-folk, looked like the remnants of a disinherited race.

George ELIOT, Silas Marner, 1861.
