Hilary, you do remember that most of those Evelyn Waugh characters ended up making gruesome and untimely ends? Greet the Mother of the Dominion for me.

Fr DU said...

But wouldn't a Waugh character know WHICH Lord Someoneorother it was?

Enjoy the ride!

Awfully good it's come up Waugh rather than Greene.

Many congratulations on the happy move, and do please say hello to HM for me -- and perhaps ask her if she'd like a new hat. Our Soveriegn would make a fine first millinery customer for you!
