Arthur Conan Doyle Quote
The rain had ceased at last, and a sickly autumn sun shone upon a land which was soaked and sodden with water. Wet and rotten leaves reeked and festered under the foul haze which was soaked and sodden with water. The fields were spotted with monstrous fungi of a size and colour never matched before - scarlet and mauve and liver and black.
Sir Nigel, Chapter I (p. 2), Smith, Elder & Co. 1906
