My Dear Mr.Churchyard,
I loved the image of the Countess Lieven waltzing
at Almacks.As you probably know the Countess introduced the
waltz at Almacks in 1813 and caused a great to do.This real-
ly shook up such a dull place.Then her rival Lady Jersey
went to Paris and brought back the quadrille and made an ev-
en bigger splash.I love anything to do with The Lady Patro-
nesses.In fact I am giving them a new occupation solving
