Todays quotation is from The Crooked Hinge by John Dickson Carr.
In this the people of the district moved without comment. They did not take sides. In country life each person depends on the other for something, giving and receiving; in a case like this you had to wait and see what happened, so matters could be reasonably comfortable whichever way the verdicts went. —
