  1. Hi Lindy: Congrats. It’s good to see that your second book will be out soon.
    Did Sir John A. like Jamaican food? His wife (2nd wife) was Jamaican, so, being of Jamaican background myself, I wonder if that changed his diet at all. (I don’t mean the drinking, though she apparently did a lot to curb it.) Congrats again!

    1. Thank you so much Cynthia. Interesting that you are of Jamaican background. I have a cousin born there though I’ve never been and really must. Agnes was Jamaican-born but mostly very English. Apparently she was entirely lacking in culinary imagination! And though, yes, she tried to curb John A. of his egregious drinking problem – she didn’t have a lot of luck. He was such a character – terribly flawed but fascinating.
