Chapter 25

The Historians

  • Back in London, it's raining. Wow, seems like even when it's on wheels, it's always raining in London.
  • London is bubbling over with jingoism after the destruction of scarytown-reallylongname, and Katherine is troubled.
  • She tries to convince the Historians to help her, but they refuse. "We are old, and frightened, and there really is nothing more that we can do" (25.55). Really brave, guys.
