Given by Lady J and Le Professeur Williams

Wolfie and Stanzie Mozart (Trystan L. Bass and Thomas Dowrie) share a romantic moment. Perhaps Stanzie has inspired yet another magnificent composition from Le Maestro.

Monsieur le Docteur Hanson

Monsieur le Docteur Hanson escorts Madame le Duchesse du Welss to the Banquet. Guests dined by candlelight. The fragrance of fresh cut flowers filled the room. We were entertained with music and poetry. The revolutionary element did make themselves known by an enthusiastic singing of La Marseillaise. One simply cannot escape the rabble of the street. Even in the best houses one is assaulted by this revolutionary fervor.

La Princesse d'Adamme and le Vicomte de Valmont share a table -- and perhaps some scandal -- with la Marquise du Monteil and our host and hostess Lady J and le Professeur Williams.
