Quote of the Day

Jill was furious with Penny when she returned from St. Ursula's Court. "Dr. Wilkinson came again," she said accusingly, "and That Dog wasn't here. Don't you want to sell her?"
"No," said Penny.
"Oh," said Jill, slightly taken aback. "Well," she said, rallying, "how do you expect to make money? Dr. Wilkinson thinks that he might give you three guineas for her, I asked him. Three guineas!"
"That's just it," said Penny. "I know that I've got to sell her to make some cash to give to the Masters, but I don't want to sell her."

From FOURPENNY FAIR, Chapter 10, Reprieve for Candy.
