Hello George,

But the writer had to spoil it by saying:

"There were many respectable families from Penzance, and the
neighbourhood round, who were invited, and for whose
reception a large booth was erected "

Was not everyone "respectable"?

Obviously class distinctions were alive and well in Cornwall in 1846!

Kindest Regards ...... Corinne in Melbourne, Australia.
