in consequence of the missive, Indemnify the Malapropism: Act I, penned by Cheryl
My favorite saying by Mrs. Malaprop is yet ahead (no spoilers), but I'd like to ask a question about girls' education. Mrs Malaprop condemns fluxions (the term used currently is derivative - I won't go into priority dispute between Newton and Leibniz). Were the 18th century girls taught differential calculus? Or did Mrs. Malaprop mean medicinal term?
