in consequence of the missive, I agree, penned by Maisy
Black Hole a small dungeon in Calcutta: On the night of June 20, 1756, 123 of the 146 Europeans reputedly confined there were said to have died of heat and lack of air. (b) Any dungeon.
The brides name is Miss Holwell (hole, well i.e. dungeon) who belongs to the Black Hole of Calcutta. Now this I do not know: Is Miss Holwell fictitious made up for a joke or is Miss Holwell real and JA made up a joke about her?
