Book Tag: Round Two

So Sarah left her "book tag" open to anyone, so I'm considering myself tagged.

A recap of the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (with at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag 3 people.

book: Letters Written in France, by Helen Maria Williams, published 1790.

"The Poor, he believed, were only born to suffering, and he determined, as far as in him lay, not to deprive them of their natural inheritance. on the whole , if it were the great purpose of human life to be hated, perhaps no person ever attained that end more completely than the Baron Du F----. His son discovered early a taste for literature, and received an education suitable for literature, and received an education suitable to his rank and fortune."
A little light reading on the French Revolution from my "Romanticism and War" class. The book is really more fun than this clip suggests. But I guess you'll have to take my word for it.

Groooover, Dinty, and Special K, consider yourself tagged!

I thought about replying with the book nearest me, but there really isn't any value in problem 2.38 in my computer arithmetic text book. Then again, what are the minimally redundant digit sets that can be used in a radix-4 signed-digit adder? Love reading your blog and seeing how you guys are doing!
