Re: The nabob grinned.
That's nice frank, thanks. Always some nuance - I haven't read your books, but I guess it's still possible to perpetuate the iffy stereotypes and attitudes of your time while not being an out and out racist, so I'd still be a bit uncomfortable reading the books to my young kids.
And it's always possible to do a bit of counter quote mining: eg Me velly bad boy tellee whoppee! No tellee truth like English boy. Allee samee in China. not cool.
No biggie frank it's a long time past now (though I must say you're sounding well for it)
