Incipits: DICKENS, Oliver Twist

Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitous 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 consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events, the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.

Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist, 1838.
