"But his hon. friend raised a question of a different kind by the Bill he had introduced, and argued as if it were a mere complement to the measure he had himself passed two years ago, contending that, in logic, the House of Commons was bound to confer the parliamentary suffrage on women, because it had trusted them with the municipal franchise."

The closest book is the one I'm currently working on.

Going to p. 56 (as it is during the editing process),
If lines in a poem separated by commas count as sentences then it is "and her colours bright."

If it's full 'sentences', then it would be the first line of the last stanza on the page, which is "Condemned to a tiny iron cage."

He'd reluctantly accepted the de la Farte theory, after rereading it to be certain he had not misread it before and was all but disheartened by the realization that it might take months or even years before he stumbled upon the name of a demon who might still be summoned-if, indeed there were any such.

"A Personal Demon" by David Bischoff, Rich Brown and Linda Richardson.

If you've heard of it, and read it, I'd be pretty impressed.  It's like a 30 year old paperback.  Loaned it out a few years ago, never came back and i had to hunt down a used copy of it through amazon, it's just gathering dust on my desk at the moment but i intend to read it again when i have a chance.

There are as many Heralds in a region as necessary, although this title usually goes to only those who are trustworthy, capable of putting the needs of the Consillium ahead of their own.
