It does - although he seems to have had mental health issues throughout their marriage, and that this was the reason they had to leave their school in 1787. Sad for both of them.
But now we move on to an author who (so far) seems to have had a more cheerful life. Section 8 is up!

Section 7 is up. It is a sad section, but I thought it had a real sweetness to it.

One of the great perks of these biographies is how they kickstart a lot of research into things I had never really known much (if anything) about before ! And section 5 is up!

It was! And I don't quite know what to make of the fact that she asks her brother to give her his son, as she has no children, and ..he does! In this section, there was a very brief reference to the execution of a Dr. Dodd, which made me curious. Here is a link to the story on that : https://en.wiki...
