From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
About seven years after Toby had moved to Mr. Shandy's estate, he was sitting at dinner one night—and, by the way, the Corporal was sitting, too, because Toby made him out of consideration for his bum knee, except Trim would stand when Toby wasn't looking out of respect—when the landlord of the nearby inn came by to ask for some wine for a sick guest.
Toby is happy to give him some booze, but he starts to wonder about the sick guest. Trim says that the guest has a young son with him, and Toby thinks very hard. He wants to visit the guest, but, since the weather's bad, he sends the loyal Trim.
