The English stone under law varied by commodity and in practice varied according to local standards. The Assize of Weights and Measures, a statute of uncertain date from c. 1300, describes stones of 5 merchants' pounds used for glass; stones of 8 lb. used for beeswax, sugar, pepper, alum, cumin, almonds, cinnamon, and nutmegs; stones of 12 lb. used for lead; and the London stone of 12+1⁄2 lb. used for wool. In 1350 Edward III issued a new statute defining the stone weight, to be used for wool and "other Merchandizes", at 14 pounds,[nb 2] reaffirmed by Henry VII in 1495.

The dragon's eyes widened, his voice trembling, "You wouldn't dare!"
"Well, an omelette would take too long," I bluffed.
There was a long silence, and my arms started to ache.
"Fine," the dragon growled, "I'll kidnap your wicked mind-controlling sister-in-law, princess."
I sighed with relief, "Thank you."
