Definition of scanning:
The first small adventure was as follows: I was walking swiftly up Drury Lane, scanning the houses, for it was falling dark, and the oil- lights that burned, one before every tenth house, cast but a poor illumination, when just beyond one of the lights I knocked against a fellow who was coming out suddenly from a little passage at the side, just, as it chanced, opposite to Mr. Fenwick's house.- "Oddsfish!", Robert Hugh Benson.
