Quandary Resolution 1319
guillotine, traduce, Gretna Green, Manichean
'He's nothing but a blasted seducer!' fulminated the colonel on receiving a soggy postcard stamped 'Gretna Green', forthwith launching into a vehement traducement of 'that confounded blackguard', taking the Manichean view that whilst holy matrimony predicated upon fatherly approval was one thing, clandestine elopement was quite another, a crime that only summary guillotining of Charlotte's generous allowance could in some small measure redress.
