Well! Another Sunday and still no correction in the Sunday Prophet. They have yet to run a retraction of the hideous lies they printed about my dear friend Ophelia Selwyn, despite the fact that I have written to them not once but twice
to set the record straight (just in case the first owl got lost.) Clearly they would rather spread vicious rumours than actually inform the public, so I'm taking it upon myself to make sure everyone knows the real story -- and Gavin MacDougal's true character.
Let it be known that Gavin MacDougal-- nephew of Xavier Orpington and former fiancé of Ophelia Selwyn-- broke off their engagement for no reason besides the fact that he was trying to butter up his
horrible rat-faced uncle so he could get his hands on his money. Apparently Mr Orpington didn't approve of the match-- despite the fact that Ophelia is lovely and entirely worthy of approval-- and Gavin Mr MacDougal would rather line his pockets than honour his commitment to his future wife.
Now that there is apparently no will, I hope that somehow means that Mr Orpington's galleons slip right through his fingers and he ends his days penniless and alone, because it would serve him right.
There you have it. Just the facts-- you'll notice I have refrained from editorialising or speculating. If I had a subscription to the Prophet, I would cancel it. If that's what passes for journalism these days, we're in a sorry state indeed.
