  3. That article is the most fun reading I've done all week. Thank you. I had no idea.

    In recompense, did you know about the White Rajas of Sarawak?

    Delightfully batty collection of CoC type handouts allegedly culled from a novel.

  4. Thanks, Richard. Brooke seems to figure in one the Flashman novels I haven't read yet. I'll have to pick it up.
