  tpstar: "Marcus is a concupiscent ex-service-major who makes dishonest propositions to all. He is considered to have committed, invoking droit d'auteur, simple infidelities with Kevin, a virgin, and to be practising for unnatural coits with Trevor and Neil, two Brazilians. Marcus, Josephus, Trevor and Neil are consanguineous to the lowest degree. Johanna, the wife of Marcus, has been told by her tire-woman, Jessica, that Marcus has blasphemously confessed under voluntary chastisement that he has instructed his slave, Trevor, to urge Caesar, a commercial, emulous of Marcus, to solicit the chastity of Johanna. Johanna is informed by some illegitimate children of Jessica with Trevor (the supposition is David's) that Aila, the schismatical wife of Caesar, is visited clandestinely by Robertus, the advocate of Marcus, an immoral person who has been corrupted by Neil.😉"
