Wiggin, K. D. (n.d.). Penelope's Experiences in Scotland. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. A Triangular Alliance. ?Edina, Scotia?s Darling seat! All hail thy palaces and towers!? Edinburgh, April 189?. 22 Breadalbane Terrace. We have travelled together before, Salemina, Francesca, and I, and we know the very worst there is to know about one another. After this point has been reached, it is as if a triangular marriage had taken place, and, with the honeymoon comfortably over, we slip along in thoroughly friendly fashion. I use no warmer word than`friendly? because, in the first place, the highest tides of feeling do not visit the coasts of triangular alliances; and because, in the second place, ?friendly? is a word capable of putting to the blush many a more passionate and endearing one.
