Transvestitism & Dentistry.

Hello again, all. I thought I'd give you fair warning of a talk I'm giving on 3rd July at the charming St Pancras Old Church. I'll be telling you all about two 18th-century foreign gentlemen, who graced the pages of my Gin Lane Gazette. They are the celebrity dentist and freemason, the Chevalier Ruspini, and the transvestite French spy and swordsman, the Chevalier d'Eon. The latter was such a good female impersonator that for many years there was feverish speculation on the London Stock Exchange as to his true sex.

I hope you'll see fit to come along. There are more details here:

Also, please don't forget to spread the word about the fully searchable Kindle version of Gin Lane Gazette now being available for your digital pleasure.

Thank you. As you were.
