October 1707

MISTER BARTHOLOMEW YORKE, feeling rather needled on being called
a sassenach, laid on the Yorkshire accent, thick, in his reply to Charles Stirling
of Kippendavie.

Now then, Mister Stirling. I thank thee for y' kind offer, but I'm of a mind
t'venture east and no t'west. So the Americas is well out of't picture. India, that
looks like place where profit can be had for't taking - and I plan to do just that.
Now, if that might fit bill for yer'sel an't partners, then an arrangement could
just be had if't numbers prove right enough. What say y' t'that?

Charles narrowed his eyes, shook his head and tutted. I offer ye one way, and ye
take it another, are ye slippery like an eel, eh Mister Yorke? Ill take ma time
and think on it.

Bartholomew nodded, and told the Scotsman that he would allow him time to
come to his decision.

Mister Yorke then went and paid Maestro Hindes for his services at the
upcoming ball (10 guineas). He was most pleased, and thanked you for
employing him, I trust the music will be to your satisfaction, and make it my
noble aim to ensure it is! he said.

Then began his own preparations for the event, visiting first a cobbler for fitted
shoes (5 guineas) and then a tailor to have made new clothing (6 guineas).
Lastly a new hat was sought (a guinea). All these items being of a plain and
practical design, in dark colours, but of obvious good quality and marking him
as a commoner of no small means. Bartholomew's only concession to vanity was
made in the purchase of a silver topped black walking cane (3 guineas), which
could be suspended via a looped strap from a waistcoat button to allow him use
of his hands.

The ball is next turn, on the 5th of November, so I'd best think up something interesting to contribute.
Maybe I'll have to have it posted on the door in big letters, "No persons calling English men sassenachs
are to be permitted - on pain of a Yorkshire-shoe-clad-foot encountering seized backside of the offender!"

In my defence. He started it! lol!

And it could have been worse ... I could have employed my weakness of Temper when giving my reply to Mr Stirling of Kippendavie.
