Very good - especially "cold promiscuities". I tried to place this historically, which may be a mistake. In the end the musketry, and God's praises, made me lean towards the English Civil War. If that's still what they call it.

Very good anyway (and pretty much timeless, I suppose - apart from that blasted musketry).

Cheers

Thanks all. 1660's, based on a book by Daniel Defoe.

I'll take that. I'm not far out. In the right century - a couple of decades off - anyway.
