The Duke's ChildrenThe Duke of Omnium has apparently retired from politics and after his wife's death he concentrates on bringing up the kids. However they all cause him endless problems, with Mary declaring she'll never marry anyone except the poor and untitled Treagar, Silverbridge, the eldest son, getting kicked out of Cambridge, changing his political allegiance, losing stacks of money in a horse swindle and getting engaged to an American of all people. Young George was relatively well behaved, just some minor gambling debts and also getting kicked out of Cambridge (but then Oxford picked him up).

Jolly good. Loads of good stuff going on and an excellent hunting accident.
