Merry Christmas

Today the salon doors close for an extended Christmas break as my rakish colonial gent and I devote ourselves to the festivities and finishing books! Normal service shall be resumed with a brand new post on soon after the new year!

I hope you have a wonderfully merry Christmas, however you choose to spend it; if you have a hankering for some 18th century festive cheer, do read my story of Silent Night, and I wish you a most pleasant few days. 


In the meantime, if you're looking for a most theatrical Christmas gift, I am thrilled to announce that we are bringing An Evening with Jane Austen to Wellington College on 28th January 2018, and tickets can be purchased here.

  3. 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!
