More letterbox angels

Yet another odd collection of unbidden donations was posted through our door (this time at 11.30pm) with no indication of the sender. Aside from a well-thumbed copy of Pope's Rape of the Lock and a peculiar local amateur dramatics video, there was also an essay on Jonathan Swift and scatology.

Nosing through the essay, I learnt that mouth-to-mouth resuscitation was only one method of revival favoured in the Eighteenth century. Fumigating the rectum with tobacco smoke was thought of equally highly...

I'm sure Abraham didn't have this trouble with his celestial visitors.
