Hi Barbara,

It's shocking that people spent their lifetimes in such tedious occupations and that the men, especially, had no idea of how their elegant clothes were maintained!

Section 19 is PL OK.

My best,

Pam

Yeah:
Brummell's [clobber] topped with a crisp, immaculately-starched cravat. Brummell spent five hours dressing each day, and gave the cravat his special attention. Once, a visitor observed piles of twisted cloth on the floor of Brummell's dressing room. Asking what they were, Brummell's valet wearily observed, "Those, sir, are our failures".
Best,

Barbara
