"The worst part was that he really had no choice, not really. Now that he stood off and looked at himself, he knew deeply and surely that he would do what Castle wanted. I le would do it his own way, with his own misgivings, belabour himself with inner doubts, but he would do it. Me had to know. Because he was the kind ot man he was, shaped as he had been by his life, there was no choice for Peregrine White. He had made the choice some fifteen years ago. He might waver occasionally; he might consider the recent and proper claims of friendship, of personal loyalty, and that would interfere with his sureness, but, basically, there was no choice. White knew that. But he didn't like knowing it and he didn't much like himself."
