Today’s sentence comes from Evelina by Fanny Burney.

“She was attended by a French gentleman, whom she introduced by the name of Monsieur Du Bois: Mrs. Mirvan received them both with her usual politeness; but the Captain looked very much displeased; and after a short silence, very sternly said to Madame Duval, ‘Pray who asked you to bring that there spark with you?’ ”
