been saving him a set
It was a seat, Dale.
Alas Tim I would have caught that eventually tho a2k doesn't allow much time for edit. My apologies to all for such grotesque raillery
then usurped by a captain of artillery
Had you read the book, you would know that it was not usurped, the captain had the right to claim the seat.
Thank you for that report, Tim. Actually I had read the book but being forgetful, I'm in the process of rereading
Since I read only during the commercials I keep a second bookmarks going halfway thru the remainder of the tome and even so disremember such detail
The Captain's authorization aside, however, I'm wondering about deeper meanings, belletristic technique, allegory, etc
But thanks for your interest Tim
