The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Michael Strogoff by Jules Verne:|
Jolivet. Jolivet, an optimist by nature, found everything
agreeable, and as by chance both lodging and food were
to his taste, he jotted down in his book some memoranda
particularly favorable to the town of Nijni-Novgorod.
Blount, on the contrary, having in vain hunted for a supper,
had been obliged to find a resting-place in the open air.
He therefore looked at it all from another point of view, and
was preparing an article of the most withering character
against a town in which the landlords of the inns refused
to receive travelers who only begged leave to be flayed,
"morally and physically."
