'You little, insignificant, good-for-nothing, upstart, pert, chattering puppy!'
So glad to see this blog is still going. I have not been on blogger for a long time now. I love this blog, and the Marie Antoinette one too. :)
So who is or was Jack Payne? Thanks.
Answered me own question, nice article in Wikipedia, by did he command a much of ships and how do you get appointed to command a ship and never actually set foot on it?Most entertaining. This little bit of history should really wind up as an aside in a Regency Historial Romance story uh hum....
