Rangoon 1852

 

The thunderous tumult of the cannonade shook the air as three ships of the line hurled volley after volley of 50 pound exploding shells at the stout hearted Burmese regiments defending the port of Rangoon.

Dearest Elvira,

My rendezous in Erythrai with Hafez, the Mohammedian arcanist I've told you about, and Herr Schimmelmann the archaelogist was a smashing success. 

Hafez is quite the genial host; I always look forward to the preliminaries at his grand Aegean villa, though my equilibrium and fortitude is always tested by his taste for inebriating consumables. The Bacchanalian nature of the festivities included innumerable decanters of rakai, a liquor with both heady and…

Thanks for the sunshine state welcome Sir Jon !  I am hoping that I am able to do some appearances at steampunk events in the areas around the state that actually support the culture.  I travel outside Florida working at events, but there is little that occurs down here in SW Florida where I live.
