in consequence of the missive, The little questions, penned by LaurieC
I found it interesting that June is described as "the atom with flaming hair," and then on the next page, "What atoms men were..." I tried to find out on-line when the word "atom" was popularly used in this manner.
I also stumbled across the word "psychologically" or "psychological" (can't find it now), and am unsure when that term became commonly applied. (I need to find a good reference book since I'm floundering--this is what happens when our daughter takes our good dictionary to college with her!)
Also, in chapter 3, there's: "He himself might drink a good deal, for, thanks to that p----- prescription of Blight's..." Is the line meant to disguise a naughty word, a stutter, or what's going on here?
