I had an enjoyable time rereading Swallowdale last night. I was interested in the duck eggs in the Medicine Man's story. I have found a duck egg source and they are quite good, or maybe I am just being pedantic.

In Swallowdale, for the first time ever, I noticed a house maid mentioned the scene where the GA leaves.

The statement that the money from the book was jut pocket money also points to inherited wealth.

Even AR cannot help but slip in a few of the 19th century mores.
