Miss Alice Talmage (Aristocrat)

Having high expectations for Alice’s prospects of finding a husband, her parents became quite disapproving whenever her interest in science took precedence over enteraining suitors. Disapproval turned to outright dismay when it became evident her constant tinkering with galvanic gadgets was more than a passing hobby. Recognizing a kindred spirit, her uncle suggested to them that Alice join his “reading circle”, the Jabberwock Club, where she might find elgible bachelors more on par with her intellectual abilities.
