|I wonder about all those "d--"s too.

in consequence of the missive, John Thorpe´s way of talking, penned by MarianneR
It really confuses me about James Morland. Wouldn't he hear that talk and think his friend has a problem controlling his mouth? I figure if "d--" was a term JA didn't want to put directly in print, it wasn't "okay" in polite society. It seems that the Morlands were average folks but polite from the testimony of the book. James doesn't seem "corrupted" himself, but I don't understand how he's able to find John Thorpe some kind of chick magnet.
