Chapters 1 and 2 are PL OK.

I only wish I could read this accurately and swiftly.

Hi Peter,

I've one note for chapter 4. I'll leave you to decide whether or not it merits changing. It's perfectly understandable but you were, alas, only too close to the text at a point when the text had a typo.

3.44-3.54
That bestial face, with the eyes of a small-town ursurer and the sly psalm-singing mouth that butter wouldn't melt in, has often arrested me.

Yes, I pondered over that, and looked up "ursurer". I wondered if it meant someone who looked after bears, and then came to the conclusion that it might be a variant of "usurer". I'm inclined to leave it in and let the listener decide what to make of it. Other people seem to have used the word, possibly in ignorance, but that may be how new words come about and who am I to obstruct it.

That's funny, I thought it might be a keeper of a dancing bear. Ursurer it is then.

PL OK. Just think what a good dry run this is if you ever fancy doing de Sade!
