Despite his deeply felt remorse over the loss of Jonathan Strange’s wife, Major Grant’s patience for the man was wearing thin. He didn’t wish to hear another word about the supposed magical advantages that might be acquired through induced madness, though Strange had been ranting on the subject for the entire duration of the carriage ride.
