Game 51, book 5, lines

And here are the possible openings for William Ainsworth's Rookwood.

1) Within a sepulchral vault, and at midnight, two persons were seated.
2) Few places in England - nay, in the world - can have such strange and tragic events associated with them as the manor of Rookwood Place, near C______, in Sussex.
3) Consider, reader, a drive of elms standing tall, and beyond them, in the distance, the composed and handsome face of a great manor house.
4) There is no more abominable form of bore than the sort of philosopher who insists against all evidence on the existence of free will.

What is the real first line of Rookwood?



The Deadline for this is going to be Monday.
