A Horse in London

Author(s): 

A man hired a horse inLondon at 3 pence a mile.  He rode 94 miles due West to Bristol then due north to Chester, whence he returned toward London for 66 miles, which put him in Coventry.  From Coventry he made a round trip to Bristol and then continued on to London.  How much did he owe for the hire if the horse of the road from Coventry to Bristol meets the road from Chester to London at right angles? (Ladies Diary, London, 1712)
