I bet you took a deep cleansing breath after that chapter. :lol: I thought your puffing and wheezing was just exactly what the text called for.

44 is PL OK!!

Barry
finally got around to writing a short abstract for the quote in the MW

Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour is a delightful comic satire of the fox-hunting fraternity of the mid 19th Century. Surtees takes great pleasure in creating comic personalities and dialogue and resembles the later Pickwick Papers of Dickens, whose style may well have been influenced by Surtees. The story follows the eponymous Soapy Sponge, a Victorian freeloader and confidence trickster, who manages to work his way around the gentrified houses of southern England, fox-hunting as he goes.

Hope that's ok.
