in consequence of the missive, I never thought of that. How clever of Mr Shepherd!, penned by JanELT
It seemed as if Mr. Shepherd, in this anxiety to bespeak Sir Walter's goodwill towards a naval officer as tenant, had been gifted with foresight; for the very first application for the house was from an Admiral Croft, with whom he shortly afterwards fell into company in attending the quarter sessions at Taunton; and indeed, he had received a hint of the admiral from a London correspondent.
I think we can take that 'It seemed as if Mr. Shepherd...' as heavy with irony!
