Friday’s Piece

What is that I feel, Fanny? Why am I so weak in body that I cannot take exercise? Why cannot I keep my mind on a book for one moment? Why can I not write two sentences together? Why should every mouthful that I eat stick in my throat? Oh, Fanny, is it his legs, think you, or is it his title?

(From Chronicles of Barsetshire by Anthony Trollope, 1815 – 1882)
