Philip was too late for the coach he had hoped to go by, but there was another that left c at night, and which reached Newcastle in the forenoon, d so that, by the loss of a night’s sleep, e he might overtake his lost time. But, restless and miserable, he could not stop in Hartlepool longer than to get some hasty food at the inn from which the coach started. He acquainted himself with the names of the towns through which it would pass, and the inns at which it would stop, and left word that the coachman was to be on the look-out for him and pick him up at some one of f these places.
