A Tale of Two Cities

Original Text

Modern Text

Who could that be with Mr. Lorry—the owner of the riding-coat upon the chair—who must not be seen? From whom newly arrived, did he come out, agitated and surprised, to take his favourite in his arms? To whom did he appear to repeat her faltering words, when, raising his voice and turning his head towards the door of the room from which he had issued, he said: “Removed to the Conciergerie, and summoned for to-morrow?” Someone was with Mr. Lorry who Dr. Manette couldn’t see. Who was it? His riding coat was on the chair. Who had he been talking to when Mr. Lorry came out, nervous and surprised, to embrace Dr. Manette? To whom did he repeat Lucie’s words when he raised his voice, turned toward the door of the room he had just come from, and said, “He’s been taken to the Conciergerie and goes on trial tomorrow.”
