… the railway will encourage…

“She agrees with the Duke of Wellington that the railway will encourage the lower orders to move about.” –Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, 1810-1865, from Cranford (TV) Episode 2 August 1842; the quote may not exist in the three Gaskell books that were used to create the TV series (Cranford, Mr. Harrison’s Confessions, and Lady Ludlow), but it is too delicious to pass up; the quote is said of Lady Ludlow by Miss Galindo
