In response to Who is Topsy?, written by Lesley on August 26, 1998 at 01:43:34
] I keep running into references to "Topsy" when I read books by British authors. I haven't been keeping track of every reference but I know Agatha Christie has mentioned it and so does Nancy Mitford. Is this a character like Mrs. Malaprop from the Beggar's Opera?
Topsy is a child that 'just growed'. I always thought she was in "Uncle Tom's Cabin", but I'm not sure. Not very helpful, I'm afraid......
