I have been interviewed by the delightful Lillie.
(For details, see after the last question.)
Lillie's First Question:
Many of us are aware of your fierce contest last summer for the affections of a fair maiden.
Unfortunately, you were publicly beaten by a dog, and apparently consoled yourself with a trip to Italy with yet another woman.
My readers are wondering how Mrs. Newbery responded to these events and how you have arranged your marriage to allow for such events?
Ignorance is bliss.
Mrs N. knows not the women who divert me
She would, if she knew, desert me.
It is, forsooth,
A simple truth
What she doesn’t know wont hurt me.
