Quandary Resolution 748
nucha, lament, comptroller, eschew
The Dutch ghetto was the only permitted European enclave in Japan in 1720 and Franz was the proud comptroller for the Dutch East India Company in this exotic heathen land but when he fell under its spell and found himself seduced, not by a Geisha, which would have been correctable, but by the Daimyo’s daughter there was no way to eschew disaster and to the great lament of all concerned, particularly Franz, he had seen her nucha un-chaperoned and lost his head for a very unsatisfying glimpse… of her neck.
