Stroll” in literature

There was a brief silence, and then a match was struck again, and almost immediately she inhaled the fragrance of an excellent cigar. “I am going to have a comfortable smoke and stroll about always within sight and hearing. I daresay you are watching me, and wondering what will happen when I discover you, I can tell you what will happen.

Frances Hodgson Burnett – The Shuttle

As it was now too near the middle of the day to see any dancing, and hearing that a bull was expected down from the country, to be baited in the presidio square, in the course of an hour or two, we took a stroll among the houses.

Richard Henry Dana – Two Years Before the Mast

One day after dinner Will took a stroll among the firs; a grave beatitude possessed him from top to toe, and he kept smiling to himself and the landscape as he went.

Robert Louis Stevenson – Merry Men
