Welcome indeed, ADubiousSource! It's always nice to have new victims - um, I mean participants, of course!

That sounds like it must be Nokes speaking to Alf Prentice in Smith of Wootton Major. Just let me check my book to be sure...

Yes, that's it. Lovely person, isn't he?! Wouldn't you like to have Nokes as your boss?!

Yes indeed, Squatter! The seemingly friendly greeting (when taken out of context) is actually a warning, and thus appropriate on various levels.

Next one's yours.

Well, even wishes take a little time for thinking; as swift as I was able to find it, here is the answer to the quote: It's Aotrou to Itroun, asking her to name even the slightest wish she might have, so that he could fulfil it.

Excellent, Guinevere! We haven't had a quote from On Fairy-Stories in awhile, and I wasn't sure if someone would find it easily.

Thank you Esty!
( I am very fond of "On Fairy-Stories". I have already convinced two friends to read it, and sent a copy to my brother!)

Well, here's a new quote for guessing:

Oh, I guess I forgot this thread - I would have recognized the short quote easily, since I've studied Leaf by Niggle closely in the past weeks. It's Niggle, speaking to Parish.

This is about Aotrou and Itroun:

when blossom white on bush was laid;
there minstrels sang and wine was poured,
as it were the marriage of a lord.

Hmm, Roverandom says "Very pleased to have met you" to Artaxerxes, but that's not the exact quote. Am I in the wrong work and should be looking elsewhere?
