Sample text from the PDF is below:
The Brothers Lude own the title to a small coaching business licensed to carry the Paris-Calais mails and passengers. The three of them have scraped together the money after years of hard service in the army and the constabulary of the county, and they are proud that they were able to secure one of these rare licenses. Consequently they are very protective of their coach and the reputation of their business.
Guillaume, the oldest, enjoys taking personal charge of the protection of the coaches. Randolf uses his years of experience with the officals whose territory the coach line runs through to smooth over political hurdles and to gather information about possible threats. Maximillian, the young half-brother, is a crack hand at leading the team, and is in awe of his older siblings.
The three men make the Paris-Calais trip at a breakneck three-day pace. At Calais they pause only long enough to take passengers on, then return in another three days. Sunday in Paris is spent at Notre Dame, thanking God for another successful week's business.
