Quandary Resolution 333
scienter, wallflower, inoculate, gourmand
"You will inevitably be a wallflower should you go to Almack's Assembly Rooms with smallpox, and you cannot choose to be a gourmand instead since the only refreshments are weak ratafia and stale watercress sandwiches; therefore before your debut get yourself inoculated or with scienter spend the months before working with the dairy maid," advised the governess Miss Tweedle to her pupil Miss Dum.
