Ch13: Raymond Had A Plan
The typical technical sketch of a mining entry-way demonstrates Raymond was actively thinking and planning. But so was Victoria; who early-on gave Raymond her ladies’ calling card.
History shows that when some turn-of-the-century women were interested in a man they “double-knotted” their personal calling card ribbons; a subtle sign they wanted a more serious relationship.
Whether or not Raymond understood this subtlety at that time in the story is unknown. To make the illustration accurate a small silk ribbon was man-fumbled into a double-knot; and is the sign of the budding romance.
