When I read the inventory of things this ‘genteel’ lady had secreted about her person I wondered big the muff she was carrying was!
Not only that, how did she get the other things under her skirts without someone noticing?
Quite a selection she had stashed away there. Apart from the clothing she seemed to be just doing her shopping for a nice night in with a friend. Oysters, broiled crab, codfish, fruit, vegetables, dessert and some reading material. Along with the cut glass tumblers, all she needed was a bottle of red and she was set.
