So, here I'm back with another one (I wonder how long you can bear it, but you know, your help means a lot to me really and I think I'm lost without you...)
This time there is an account given about this apparition scared pedagogue encountered close to the stream bridge at night, and which "made no offer of molestation or sociability, but kept aloof on one side of the road, jogging along on the blind side of old Gunpowder (which is the teacher's horse), who had now got over his fright and waywardness."
Now, what would that "blind side" of... whatever it would be, be...? I again tried some dictionaries and even "google-search" but non of the outcome did really seem to match this context. For any suggestions thanks in advance.
