in consequence of the missive, About the book in the Pump Room..., penned by MandyN
In ch. 5, when Catherine hopes to meet up with Henry again, she notes that his name is not in the Pump-room book, indicating that he (and perhaps his father, too?) have not purchased a subscription, and therefore would not be entitled to attend the subscription balls (until such time as they do purchase one). But I am confused as to where these balls take place (in the Pump Room?).
Also, when one purchased a subscription at the Pump Room (and signed the Pump Room book), would this be a separate subscription from that of 1.) the Upper Rooms, and 2.) the Lower Rooms? Did people purchase subscriptions at multiple venues in Bath, and if so, what other places besides the Pump Room, the Upper ROoms, and the Lower Rooms offered subscriptions?
Thank you so much, Julie, for doing all this wonderful research and sharing it with us. I truly appreciate all of your efforts. :-)
