On Bowditch

In my latest little story thing I gave Horatio a copy of Bowditch. This is roughly just possible, although I am not sure when he made it to England. My excuse was this-- if it had been possible Horatio would have revelled in it.

Nathaniel Bowditch is a local hero where I come from, at least in some circles. I had heard about him as a kid. I read the kids book about him when I was small. Anyway-- see what you think.

Also would anyone want to write a piece where he meets Jack Aubrey? They would have loved each other!

First snow here today. Coming down hard out there now. Ridiculous that it took this long. Mike has just gone out to show Sabir.
