I apologize for being unable to post a new blog this week! I had cataract surgery on Monday, and I hoped I would be able to see well enough to complete the blog I had started last weekend. However....I can't see well yet! So I offer you an article which is posted on my website; one more probably suited to Victorian times but, after all, young Regency folk did become Victorians!
The memorial cards used in this article are taken from a scrap album that came to me from my husband's family--I particularly find fascinating the card which features the young sailor. How terribly evocative it is of the age of sail.
You can read the complete article here http://www.lesleyannemcleod.com/articlemourningcards.html
And do please visit agin next week--hopefully, I will be able to see better by then!
'Til next time,
