How we cite our quotes: (Part.Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #10

"And then, Messieurs, I saw light. They were all in it. For so many people connected with the Armstrong case to be traveling by the same train by a coincidence was not only unlikely, it was impossible. It must be not chance, but design." (3.9.58)
