Book Quote Monday

Trying something new here on the blog, using a random word generator I will get a word and find it in one of Jane’s novels. I will share that quote here.

“And who is Admiral Croft?” was Sir Walter’s cold suspicious inquiry. 

Mr. Shepherd answered for his being of a gentleman’s family, and mentioned a place; and Anne, after the little pause which followed, added — 

“He is rear admiral of the white. He was in the Trafalgar action, and has been in the East Indies since; he has been stationed there, I believe, several years.” 

“Then I take it for granted,” observed Sir Walter, “that his face is about as orange as the cuffs and capes of my livery.”

Persuasion, Chapter 3
