Default It was a dark and stormy night.

Hello Robert. Thanks. I knew that name was shrouded somewhere in the mists of time.

Sheesh, D'Onston is a name I'd rather not hear again.

Cheers.

Default private investigators

Hello All. One interesting story in the book concerns Sir Edward after his legal separation from Rosina. She was in France and Sir Edward sought an occasion for quitting his alimony. Hence he hired 2 "spies" (ie, private investigators) to "obtain" some of her letters for "leverage."

The astute maid saw through their scheme of having tea with her (the maid). Lady Lytton stationed her solicitor and 2 gendarmes in her room. The maid allowed them in and straightway they wished to "see" Lady Lytton's room. She let them in. But as soon as the PI grabbed her packet of letters, the solicitor placed him under arrest.

Cheers.
