The House



Mrs after Crackentho­rpe’s her Grand Tour a-thrill of to the be provinces back in Westminste­r to attend recover all those from steamy the bed conference­s. bugs and dodgy While fry-ups she is yet of the to somewhat less than salubrious establishm­ents she was forced to bed down in, and her head remains a-thrum from the vats of poisonous white wine she consumed, her spirit is soaring with the industrial quantities of mischief and scandal she observed.

Mrs C feels certain his heart was in the right place...
