Christian arrives at Interpreter's home to be shown "excellent things" that will aid him on his journey.
from The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan:
Then he went on till he came to the house of the Interpreter, where he knocked over and over; at last one came to the door, and asked who was there.
CHRISTIAN. "Sir, here is a traveller, who was bid by an acquaintance of the good-man of this house to call here for my profit; I would therefore speak with the master of the house." So he called for the master of the house, who, after a little time, came to Christian, and asked him what he would have.
"Sir", said Christian, "I am a man that am come from the City of Destruction, and am going to the Mount Zion; and I was told by the man that stands at the gate, at the head of this way, that if I called here, you would show me excellent things, such as would be a help to me in my journey."
