Packed into these pages are answers to questions about Waterford,
Virginia, in the gay nineties that you are too polite to ask:

  • Just how much manure is too much?
  • What happened when the post-election jolliffication got out of hand?
  • How did the ladies soil their balbriggans?
  • at was the town sergeant doing with those chickens?
  • Was there something fishy about the milk?
  • Who was caught violating certain moral laws ?
  • What are the shocking facts about Dr. Connell's galvanic bath?
  • Was the livery stable really a den of sin ?
         . . . or was the death an accident?
  • And what about Mrs. Brown's ordeal?

Nothing is held back in this exclusive probe into the long-hidden
files of Waterford's old Town Council.
