    Well, now we know what happened to HER after she stormed off. 🙂

    You know, the usually don’t bother to carve the back of the impressive entrance. I’m even more impressed.

    Aww! Poor O-3 Eaton. Although, that would likely not have worked out either. I take it that Alice is like one of my mom’s great aunts who didn’t want to get married just to have some man tell her what to do all day, only not getting married hasn’t struck her as an option yet.

      Wait. 0-3? As in Zero out of Three?

      • wintermute says:

        Probably O-3 as in Officer level 3 in the military, although according to Wikipedia, an OF-3 in the British army is a Major, Captain would be OF-2. But I don’t know if that was the same in the 1800’s. Whereas if poor Captain Eaton were Royal Navy, a Captain would mean he was an OF-5 today.

    A naval Captain is the equivalent of an army Colonel — that’s British OR U.S. — probably Canadian Forces too.
    U.S. officer ranks:
    O-1 = Second Lieutenant (Army or Marines) = Ensign (Navy or Coast Guard.
    O-2 = First Lieutenant (land forces) = Lieutenant J.G. (nautical forces).
    O-3 = Captain (land) = Lieutenant (nautical).
    O-4 = Major (land) = Lieutenant Commander (nautical)
    …and so on.

    Are we sure Captain Eaton didn’t get eaten by Ms Alice?

  4. Wyvern says:

    Be careful what you wish for, Alice.

  5. jsfury says:

    Well one thing is clear. Alice didn’t make her escape, YET.

    By the way, great image of Alice struggling.
