in consequence of the missive, GR: John at Oxford, penned by Kristen G.
] John is at Oxford ~ what professions could he be studying for? My first thought was a clergyman ~ can you imagine sitting through one of his services?? (five hours later, the congregation stumbles out of the church, having lost their will to live...)
Actually, I've had a minister like this....
] But really, what do you suppose he was studying to be?
He is the eldest son. Eldest sons of gentlemen didn't usually study for a profession, professions were for younger sons. We don't know anything of their property, except that they live near London, or financial situation - yet. We'll have to keep an eye open in future weeks, and look for clues... ;-)
