=============

I'm reading "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" concurrently with "Academ's Fury". I picked the former to quote from.

"My chief problem", explained Lord Castlereagh, "is in finding men for the Army - a quite impossible task, I assure you; the British are a perculiarly unmilitary race. But I have my eye on Lincolnshire; I am told the pigs in Lincolnshire are particularly fine and by eating them the population grows very stout and strong. Now what would suit me best would be a general spell cast over Lincolnshire so that three or four thousand young men would all at once be filled with a lively desire to become soldiers and fight the French."

I tag:

You're supposed to pick the one nearest to you, not the one you would rather quote from... Or were they equidistant from you?

Hope you're well--Tor

They were both sitting on my bedstand. Equidistant enough for my purposes.
