From: Entry to the Duchess' Salon


You could use your contacts to have something suitably oleaginous published under your name. But the Duchess can be impatient with flatterers. She might be less than entertained.

Success

A poem about drought

A surprise hit, this one. Apparently the Duchess likes being compared to rain in a barren place. You're not sure you should have described her as 'refreshing', though. It might leave the wrong impression.


Failure

A poem about cats is not a success

It was a reasonable enough choice, but the Duchess must have had a lot of feline poetry written about her. She likes cats, but apparently not that much. Was it her who had the dead mouse delivered to your lodgings?
