And in that barouche we see...
I am the widow of Sir Gilhead of Meryton.
He died tragically at Goodnestone Park, though no one is quite sure of the circumstances. I love to shop and have a keen interest in collecting parasols. You can never have too many, and I would like one for each corset I buy.
The carriage behind Lady Stellectic, hold Lady Lena and Lord Nic. Unfortunately, we were not able to meet them. Perhaps they will drop in again and introduce themselves.
Oh, but look there! We see Lady Nelle of Orkney
Good day to you, Lady Vee.
I am here to dance the night away and spend time with my dear friend Lizzy.
I hail from the isle of Orkney which, while lovely, is rather lacking in balls. Dancing is one of my greatest pleasures despite the fact that I do not do it as well as I should wish to, hopefully I will get plenty of practice here. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Lord Swineberg the 3rd, Duchess de Borde and Miss Tabiadora Jensen remain in conference at the foyer.
