Permit me to name Bennetts to you...

Post by M.M. Bennetts » Fri August 27th, 2010, 9:39 am

"...A liar and a cheat, a drunkard and a disgrace, a hot-headed, hot-blooded Casanova, a useless, feckless, worthless hobbledehoy...a good-for-nothing blaggard and a slubberdegullion."

The author of May 1812 and the forthcoming, Of Honest Fame; a semi-professional accompanist and pianist specialising in music of the late 18th and early 19th centuries; a keen cross country rider and reluctant dressage competitor.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Welcome! With all those qualities, you should have no problem fitting in here. I've always wanted to do dressage, but never had the time.

What can one say to such an introduction, other than to assure you in the most enthusiastic terms that you shall feel right at home here.

Welcome! Someone posted a link to your site in another thread. I very much enjoyed your post on reassessing Jane Eyre. I'm sure you'll have fun here!

Thank you all. And may I just say that in the main the charge of slubberdegullion is untrue. I never slop gravy on my tie or waistcoat. That is to say, almost never. I should have to be very drunk indeed to do so...
