He was postman, too, but had got permission to keep a horse and cart so that he might make a good little bit by fetching parcels and orders from town. Town to us meant East Dene, and Bewick, to which Harry went, lay away to the east among the woods and hills. It was a lonesome place, Bewick, and, indeed, is still, though now they have got a railway coming within eight miles or so. But the mystery of the Moat Wood happened before there was any talk of railways.Harry Foster was his name - the carriers, I mean - and a common one enough in Northumberland. Many a ride have I gotten on his cart, which was a light one on springs - blue body, orange shafts, panelled with red, and the shafts lined red. You could tell the cart anywhere. At least any of the Breckonside boys could, quite a mile away. And if it was too far to see the cart, there was no mistaking Dappled Bess, the carriers horse, which was bright orange colour with white patches, like the circus pony the clown rides. Youve seen that pony.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
