  1. I find it interesting how many of these vulgarities have vanished without a trace! “Abigail” = lady’s maid? “Crowd” = fiddle? Wicked.

  2. and i find it interesting J and I are interchangeable as a first letter depending on a vowel or consonant next

  3. So fabulous. I looked briefly at this when you first posted it but now I’m working on a Regency period piece and had to come back. Thanks for this and the other resources you shared.
