Dear Sirs,

I would like to complain in the strongest possible way about your supposed "literary" event yesterday. Far from being literary it did, in fact, appear to be an orgy of drunken debauchery and sexual perversion of almost acrobatic proportions. Quite how anyone could even think about doing that with a pineapple, let alone succeeed, is beyond me. Although you may think to ignore my complaints, considering them irrelevant, I would have you know that I am no stranger to alcohol myself, and will always have a small glass of sherry on important national holidays such as the Queens's birthday. The amount of alcohol consumed at your event by individuals was staggering, before yesterday I was not even aware that it could be bought in large quantities, such as by the half-pint. At some point even gambling was involved, with a game of chance called a "raffle" being participated in by a large number of guests. I understand that the players risked large quantities of money in order to attempt to win gewgaws.

To add insult to injury, at some point my wife Kevin disappeared for ever. The last I heard from her was when she said "Hugh, I'm just going to look at some interesting old ceilings with this fascinating group of young men", and that was that. I believe that they were musicians of some sort, some of them looked like they hadn't washed since the morning. I have nothing against musicians myself, and always try to keep up with trends in popular music. Every tuesday, for example, I play my Easy Listening records on my gramophone during afternoon tea.

It is quite clear that you cannot be allowed to continue with these events without some form of moral supervision and so, reluctantly. I have chosen to attend all of the future events. This will give me less time to care for my antique bicycle clip collection, but I consider it to be my duty to uphold the standards that made Britain great.

As for my wife, as soon as my solicitor has completed the paperwork then I will send it over to the Thai Ladyboy Mail Order Company for a replacement.

Your faithfully,

Lieutenant Colonel Jarce-Holl (Retired)

As in loose trousers, loose bowels? you need to be clearer as in 'did anyone lose a briefcase containing 500,000 in fivers in used notes with non-sequential serial numbers?'. In my case the answer would have been 'yes, several'. Just email me any items found and all will be well.

It was a fine time indeed. Good to meet you Guy, Kate, etc. And good to catch up with those of the usual crowd that could make it down.

I did hear one salacious comment about a virginity, but I did not see it happen so can't confirm it Rolling Eyes
