The Umbrella Strikes Again: St. Vincent's downfall (aka betrothal) is assured.
George St. Vincent doesn't realize it, but his days as a bachelor in good standing are numbered.
He has a fortnight, to be precise—the duration of the Dansbury House party.
For I, Lady Harriett Ross, have committed to parting with several items of sentimental worth should I fail to orchestrate his downfall—er, betrothal—to Miss Dorothea Wythe, who is delightful, brilliant, and interested (or will be).
If I have anything to say about matters, and I always have something to say about matters, they're both doomed.
Did I say doomed? I mean, destined—to a life filled with love.
Lady Harriett Ross,
Self-proclaimed Motley Meddler * Mistress of Destiny * Wielder of the Infamous Umbrella
I'm just an old woman with opinions. On everything.
