These sentences appear to be dated. Where did they come from?

War and Peace but it is from Amazon, and copyrighted so I can't post the original.
But you can check it out http://www.amazon.com/dp/1400079985/...t_sb_ti_hist_1
The first few parapgrahs.
It could mean that the servant was going out anyway and took the letter with him.
I recommend that you read War and Peace all the way through without asking us any questions. If you found you enjoyed it enough to try it again, start it again and then you can ask us to clarify sentences you cannot fathom at all.
It's a very long book and it will take you the rest of your life to read it if you want to understand the exact meaning of every sentence you encounter. You will probably get the gist of about 90% of it the first time round.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
