    Summary

    Margaret and Samuel- probably a bit of an unlikely couple that really existed.
    December 1768/January 1769: When coming to Bath for socialising, the widowed rear-admiral Samuel Graves meets the formidable, clever Miss Margaret Spinckes.

    He does not intend to wed again and she opposes the institution of marriage altogether- but sometimes, perhaps not necessarily at first sight, differences attract another...

    This story can be read either as a prequel to my TURN: Washington's Spies inspired work "The Colonel's Portrait", as Samuel and Margaret play an important part there, or completely independent from it as a (hopefully) interesting tale about two historical Georgians with quite different views.

    Summary

    28 January 1784: when Admiral and Mrs Graves are awoken by a courier bearing exciting news from Elizabeth and John Graves Simcoe, the Admiral takes this opportunity to look to the past -and the future.

    Basically a one-shot spin-off of "The Colonel's Portrait" with a lot of prequel-ly and some sequel-ly moments including a trip down memory lane to Bath in the late 1760s, an offensive satirical Rev War poem, a baby being born and mild mentions of contemporary politics.
