Stagecoach travel in the bad old days

Purely by chance, having written a section into my new novel about the joys of long-distance coach travel around 1800 (Martha goes on a trip to the Lake District) I came across an excellent description of what conditions were like,  near the beginning of Dickens's novel "A Tale of Two Cities."  There is a chapter called "The Mail" -- well worth reading.  And if you have a Kindle, or a Kindle reading app on your computer, you can download this one for free from the Amazon Kindle bookstore.......
