Merry Christmas

Today the salon doors close for a Christmas break as my rakish colonial gent and I devote ourselves to festivities. 

I hope you have a wonderfully merry Christmas, however you choose to spend it. I shall see you for more glorious Georgian tales in 2019!

Best wishes for the season, and the coming year. Jane Austen knew a clergyman and family whose eldest son, Ralph Henry Sneyd was with Wellington at the Battle of Assaye in 1807 in India, cavalry, and later lived close to him in Hampshire. Ralph's daughter Kate became a lady at Court famous as a beauty of the time. I suspect the Duke may have nominated her. I wonder if some material burned by Cassandra Austen may have had reference to the Duke. Wellington College might be a good place to discuss this!
