A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Author:Mark Twain It made cold chills creep over me! I stopped, and said, a little faintly, "Maybe I didn't hear you just right.

He said they were.
"And this isn't an asylum? I mean, it isn't a place where they cure crazy people?"

"In King Arthur's court."
I waited a minute, to let that idea shudder its way home.« less
