Excerpt from Barchester Towers

A trying time was this for the archdeacon; for whom was designed the reversion of his father's see by those who then had the giving away of episcopal ones. I would not be understood to say th t the prime minister had in so many words promised the bishopric to Dr. Grantly. He was discreet a man for that. There is a prove with reference to the killing of cats, and those who know anyth' either of high or low government places, wing be well aware that a promise may be made without positive words, and that an expectant may be put into the highest state of encourage ment, though the great man on whose breath he hangs may have done no more than whisper that Mr. So-and-so is certainly a rising man.
