Mad Woman in the Attic



TRUNK AT AUCTION:  The Back Story

In May of 2006, Mimi Foxmorton, collector of junque, 
bid at auction on a disregarded sea trunk.
A few coins later, the bid was won and the trunk shipped to Foxmorton's home
 in upstate New York.
After reviewing the contents at great length, Foxmorton has opted to
make the Moorfields journals public in hope of preserving their unique story.
What follows herein, is the extraordinary, often grievous, tale of the Moorfields lineage.
The information within is set forth here, as is, with no editorial commentary.
Foxmorton lets the story speak for itself.

If there is anything I adore more than well, what I already adore, it's the history and secrets of Bedlam.  I couldn't pass up the chance to share with you in this REAL TOADS challenge.
The Mad Woman in the Attic intrigues me.  I adore her and her courage to no end.

Out of the realm of a usual post, (and for that I apologize....kind of...) I will be truthful that to partake of the contents of the trunk you will need to scroll about on the journal blog to become informed.  The link I will post takes you to the first page-the time line that has been constructed from the contents of the trunk as a whole.  From there you may journey as far to the edge of the Moorfields madness as you wish.  My humble thanks to those of you who take time from your day to walk the halls of my Bedlam.

I will start to traverse this journal tomorrow. I am so sorry it has taken me so long to respond to all the posts this challenge inspired. I've been busy, but that is now excuse. :)
