No New Posts "Never without a proper introduction".

As it was then, it is now; there is always a need for 'formal' introductions. Since I cannot make them myself personally, you can do so here in this forum. Tell us who you are, where you're from and what aspects of the Regency Period you love most. And welcome to the RSA!
