First sentence: "Richard Turpin was born at Hampstead, in Essex, where his father kept the sign of the Bell; and after being the usual time at school, he was bound to apprentice to a butcher in Whitechapel, but did not serve out his time, for his master discharged him for impropriety of conduct, which was not in the least diminished by his parents' indulgence in supplying him with money, which enabled him to cut a figure round the town, among the blades of the road and the turf, whose company he usually kept."
