Pleasurable jaunts

Allegra and I, on the kind suggestion of one Mrs. Woffington, set out to fair Warwick to hear the talk of the authoress Sarah-Jane Downing on her new book.  It put us in  mind of our dear Fanny Burney, that most engaging of writers. We’d give her the honourific of  ‘Lady’ were it in our  pow’r. The diverting experience included slides of 18th century pleasure gardens and the fun and foibles in which our dear members of Lady G would never dream of engaging.   The Lord Leycester Hospital and Warwick Words provided a fine welcome. We hope that some day Lady G may return to Warwick to float in on a cloud of taffeta and copious ribbons…. Ciao! — Signora
