We, the Duchesses of Suffolk and Northumberland, wish to inform the gracious readers of this blog that until Susan Higginbotham delivers a completed manuscript about us to her publisher on or about August 1, 2011, she will not be posting on this blog.
(Even if it's something really interesting? Susan asks forlornly.)
(Nay, say the duchesses.)
So there you have it. Don't blame Mistress Higginbotham, please. Blame us.
