Towards the close of the day, when many elegant Georgians had departed, and there were now only few Georgians who remained, the evening soon turned into decadence, and a series of binge drinking (chiefly wine and gin). Sword fights were also entertained by a few gallant men; and such thrilling adventures in the obscure gardens, which included leisurely rambles in the woods, with the rakish Highwayman, Rob Lucas, the painter/poet, Andris Wood, and the charming nobleman, Ian Valentine, and myself, Lady Sarah, was dangerously exciting and such a diversion.

On the whole, the grand Georgian Summer Picnic was a triumph, and one of the best days of my life! It was such a delightful experience, and on such a fine and brilliant day - the perfect weather for a picnic indeed! I heartily thank every one who came to Sir James's and my event; it was a true pleasure to make new acquaintances, and to share this passion for the Georgian era. That day of happiness and fantasy shall always be remembered by me; and it was an honour to have so many Georgians come to join in our luxurious feast. Without you Georgians of elegance, such a grand day would not have existed.
