Aunt Frances' Manuscript
Here's a background of the story Victorian Hangover.
A stack of 220 pages of type written pages has been in my sister Judith's possession
for 20 odd years. Judith was bequeathed the manuscript from our Aunt. Judith took the
precaution of photocopying it, and giving me a copy for safe keeping.
Armed with scanner, optical character recognition software, and some
patience, here it is.
The text is a verbatim copy from the paper manuscript. A couple of sentences have been punctuated
- that is all.
Any annotations and instructions have been incorporated as in the original.
I have not attempted to reorganise the text. (Aunt Frances would have loved to have
used the editing power now available!)
