@Eleanor Buxton (Kath) As the handsome couple enters the room there is a soft audible gasp from Sarah - who leaves her book behind and goes to admire Lady Buxton’s dress. ~Welcome to Tregothnan Miz Buxton, Lady Beauchamp. You both are looking well, thank goodness.~ The greetings said with a graceful courtesy. ~I was in such a state while you were gone you know. Who else knows how to measure me so fast~. Caroline then came to greet Miz Buxton and Lady Beauchamp as well. “Lovely to see you both”. Caroline as empathic as ever notices the shawl. “I will make sure you are seated closer to the fireplace when we dine. But first I must introduce Lady Davenport ( @madelynblue2012) if you haven’t met already.” Since Miz Buxton is seated near the fire, she is actually given a seat by the Viscount Falmouth (Hugh Boscawen) who offers her a genteel smile and a bow. While they bring out the soup, he comments “I do hope my Ladies are not demanding too wildly with their fashion ideas. But from everything I hear, I do think you are near angelic.~ And when she compliments the soup, his smile brightens. ~Well, that will cheer up Miss Sullivan…she did need to cheering up tonight. Also the Viscountess will be pleased to hear.~ Caroline is so pleased to have Miz Buxton in her after dinner tour around the house. And tells her how the women of her village took to macrame and beads very excitedly—they even started making earring of different colors — she hoped to get some back from her maternal Grandmother with a parcel that will hopefully be sent with Captain Griffen’s ship. She adds - “I should ask the artisans to establish an export..they could be quite the fashion during the summer.” Since they were already walking together while admiring art, Caroline asked Miz Buxton. “Did I hear correctly that Lady Beauchamp is heir apparent of a Duchy?” Because, with her father’s approval, Caroline was able to invite Caroline’s admirer Betsey - Betsey and Caroline will ask Miz Buxton and Lady Beauchamp to exchange dance partners in one of the slower dances.

Caroline looked at the beautiful tables dressed and ready for their guests. Her mother had such an exquisite taste in her choice of flowers, linens and decorations. With this dinner they would finally feel settled in Tregothnan House as the family in charge of the peerage. Her fingers ran the white satin of her gown with the pretty embroidery on the bottom. Her father on a seat by the fire place with a newspaper, her sister not far from him on a couch with a book to entertain herself and her mother overlooking the last details of the choices made by the servers, maids and the kitchen staff. The Viscountess spoke to the housekeeper – “We are sure that all the kitchen staff and the musicians had a good meal before starting their duties, right? I do not want anyone worked to hunger here…this is not that type of household.” ~”Of course not M’Lady…”~ Caroline approached her father by the fireplace, “Any news of your Opinion piece Father?” Viscount Falmouth looked up with a shake of his head “Not yet Caroline, I imagine in the next issue.” “It was very brave of you to have submitted it, and I’m very proud of you Father…I had not said that yet.” The Viscount took his daughter’s fingers and gave it a bit of a squeeze. Sarah offered a warm smile with a side glance before turning to her book. On the other side of the room the housekeeper was looking puzzled at a serving table, making the Viscountess question: “Is there anything wrong?” “I could have sworn all the serving knives were in place before you all entered.” The Viscountess and the Housekeeper’s attention were brought to the side entrance from the kitchen. Miss Tregidden came out chased by the cook Miss Sullivan. “It was her, Susan Tregidden…! I know she has the knife. I saw her with it.” The Housekeeper looked at the cook with a mixture of alarm and embarrassment. “Miss Sullivan there is no need for this…we can settle this in the kitchen at once. For now we will do with one from a different setting.” And at the tail end of that speech from the Housekeeper, a footman enters to announce their first guest. The Viscount and Sarah rise to greet, the Viscountess starts approaching the entrance as well with an alarmed look to the Housekeeper – the Housekeeper starts shooing away the cook and the maid, and Caroline the closest to the door turns to greet their first guest as well. The whole of the Boscawen family greeting the first guest with smiles and very awkwardly embarrassed expressions.

How have other players distracted themselves during the cold call phase? Waiting for some traction has me going a bit crazy.
