Ellingham My employer, an amiable enough young gentleman, though of the nouveau riche, is far from my preferred level of employment.
Whilst one does not wish to belittle one's employer, he is proof, if proof were needed, that common sense is perhaps not quite so common a commodity as many believe.
The young gentleman needs almost constant attention if he is to be protected from himself!
Now it seems he has become entangled with a young lady of dubious character. In both our interests it seems necessary to take steps to, how shall I say, secure a suitable break in the relationship!
