Of the Ising spin chain with the nearest neighbor or up to the second nearest neighbor interactions, we fixed progressively either a single spin or a pair of neighboring spins at the value they took. Before the subsequent fixation, the unquenched part of the system is equilibrated. We found that, in all four combinations of the cases, the ensemble of quenched spin configurations is the equilibrium ensemble.
