Daniel Cosway, that evil letter-writer. Self hates him with a passion. If it weren’t for him channeling Iago and writing letters about Antoinette to her English (clueless) husband, Antoinette would have had a chance to be happy.
Go away, Daniel Cosway!
Anyhoo, on pp. 112 – 113, Daniel is impatient since the English husband never responded to his letters. He therefore takes it upon himself to pay a house call (Meaning: Tragedy)
NEEDLESS TO SAY: SPOILER ALERT!
The English husband: Why did you want to see me, Daniel?
Daniel: Christophine is a bad woman and she will lie to you worse than your wife. Your own wife she talks sweet talk and she lies.
The response of the English husband: I sat still, numb, staring at him.
(Self: You, sir, are an idiot if you don’t turn this man out on his arse. Oh, you ARE an idiot. But if you weren’t, THERE WOULD BE NO STORY)
Daniel makes insinuations about Antoinette and a man the English husband has never met:
“Sandi is like a white man, but more handsome than any white man, and received by many white people they say. Your wife know Sandi a long time. Ask her and she tell you. But not everything I think.” He laughed. “Oh no, not everything.”
Damn you, Daniel Cosway! Damn you, clueless husband!
A parting shot from M. Cosway: Don’t waste your anger on me, sir. It’s not I fool you, it’s I wish to open your eyes.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
