It is the next morning -- not that that means much, in this continuing darkness. Jonathan Strange, however, has gotten very good at estimating the time of day without the guidance of sunlight, or, indeed, any sort of light, and when he judges it to be roughly seven o'clock in the morning, he rises from his bed (upon which he has lain, all night, on top of the covers, still fully clothed and still fully awake) and automatically goes to the table to light a candle.
