My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck By Lightning: Photo
The Common-place Book of the Mercurius Aulicus, a Reactionary Tory Gentleman, who armed only with a Steampowered Babbage Engine and Pure Intentions, wanders the Time Streams and Aetheric Plane gathering an Eccentric Hodgepodge of Curiousities, Frivolities, Whimsicalities and Nonsense. Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"? A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.

Stanyan's final posting, from 1718 to 1730, was as Ambassador to Constantinople, now Instanbul. His successor Lord Kinnoull spent three months with him there, surviving daily feasts which he said 'almost kill'd me'.
