This weeks entry is from Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe:
However, he took it as I meant it, that is, to let him think I was inclined to go on with him, as indeed I had reason to do, for he was the best-humoured merry sort of a fellow that I ever met with; and I often reflected how doubly criminal it was to deceive such a man; but that necessity, which pressed me to a settlement suitable to my condition, was my authority for it; and certainly his affection to me and the goodness of his temper, however they might argue against using him ill, yet they strongly argued to me that he would better take disappointment than some fiery-tempered wretch, who might have nothing to recommend him but thoue passions which would serve only to make a woman miserable.
Wow that was a real run-on sentence lol.
