  • Quotes

    • Aliena: So I give you 100 pounds, you give it to Maud and you get a license?
      Philip: Yes, yes, the same as Shiring.
      Aliena: In addition to the Sunday market, Shiring has the annual fleece fair. That's where I make most of my money.
      Philip: I... I don't follow.
      Aliena: Why don't we have one here? If the license is the same as Shiring's, why can't you host a fleece fair next year to compete with Shiring? It would save me transportation. I could lure the Flemish buyers here. You would make more money in a week than you would in a year of Sunday markets and it would break the Hamleighs' back.
      Philip: (Chuckles) Brilliant!
