Being Friday the 2nd of March, 2012 ...

This was an eventful evening under Paul's direction.

Dogsbody counted the following:
151 wounds, one of which was mortal, two murders, two Biblical deaths, one execution, one deportation, one account of cross-dressing, at least one exposed snow-white breast, an indeterminate number of drunken women, a plethora of seductions and several trains running through the Rossendale Valley.
