Thank you for the kind and seasonably appropriate comment, Simon, although I
find Michael's language usage somewhat incompatible with it. However, the
apology musket is fully reamed, tamped, and primed. It awaits only some
evidence of the aforementioned politeness and good nature - just what we'd
all expect of a southern gentleman - to be cocked and fired.
