** spoiler alert ** The tape is a bit harsh on the ears but a gift is always lovely.

I learnt that it is milch cow (cow which gives milk or is kept for milk production) not mulch cow, the term I have been erroneously using all the xx years of my life.

Learn something new everyday.

The Baluchistan Hound steals this wonderful story.

The year is 1818 – …(of a temple in Green Park): “erected there as part of the pageantry of the Peace celebrations in 1814, but as this temporary structure had been demolished, Charis thought, four years, later, that the Green Park was hardly worth a visit.”

Alverstoke is three years Brummell’s junior (Chap. 6) and he has given his age to Frederica as 37 (Chap. 3). Since Brummell was born in 1778, Alverstoke must have been born in 1781, therefore it is now 1818.

Uh-oh – there is a ‘heart-shaped face’ mentioned in chapter ten so a star is deducted.
