Johnson"I had been walking for about an hour when I finally saw a small house by the river. I realized at once that was the house he was talking (or: had been talking/had talked) about. I came (more likely: went) up to it and knocked on the door. There was a woman sitting by the window and reading the book. When she heard me knocking she stood up and went more likely: (came) to open the door."
