Recently, I have had the phrase “In which…” running through my mind. I mean this phrase to be used as part of a chapter title. “In which much is said about a tea party” “In which a man buys a hat” “In which a secret is revealed” or some other such thing. I am not entirely certain why this particular phrase is running through my head (and I do wish that it would at least take a bit of a rest, as it can be tiring), but I do know that I would like to know from whence it came. Or, more particularly, from which time period one would have seen these kinds of chapter titles. Is this Victorian? 18th century? Where might I have seen these kinds of titles?
