    Hello Freddie



    Now that you putted BIG RED LETTERS, I do understand that I didn't catch it when you gave the RIGHT answer, adding that I realized that "wood" does not sound like "wod", it's an error !!..... BUT, despite of this, you've found P.G Wodehouse ( "Lord Emsworth acts for the best", an hilarious one !), BRAVO !!

    If I may post this.

    The judge had no sooner taken his seat, than the officer on the floor of the court called "Silence!" in a commanding tone, upon which another officer in the gallery cried "Silence!" in a voice of indignant remonstrance. This being done, a gentleman in black, who sat below the judge, proceeded to call over the names of the jury.



    I hope nobody minds.

    " Never shall I forget the sensation of awe, horror, and admiration with which I gazed about me. The boat appeared to be hanging, as if by magic, midway down, upon the interior surface of a funnel vast in circumference, prodigious in depth, and whose perfectly smooth sides might have been mistaken for ebony, but for the bewildering rapidity with which they spun around, and for the gleaming and ghastly radiance they shot forth, as the rays of full moon, from that circular rift amid the clouds which I have already described, streamed in a flood of golden glory along the black walls, and far away down into the inmost recesses of the aabyss. "



    From which story, is this taken from ?? ( it's an easy one)

    It's the people in your avatar, when they brave the whirlpool of Corryvreckan.



    Or maybe it's really from that other story about a whirlpool, A Descent into the Maelstr�m by Edgar Allan Poe

    P.S. I had already sealed this up when a fresh terror struck upon my soul. It is possible that the post office may fail me, and this letter not come into your hands until to-morrow morning. In that case, dear Lanyon, do my errand when it shall be most convenient for you in the course of the day; and once more expect my messenger at midnight. It may then already be too late; and if that night passes without event, you will know that you have seen the last of . . . . . ....WHO?



    This should be easy
