Captain Arthur McPherson

Author Post
Holly Price Captain Arthur McPherson has come to Tyrehampton after a long period at sea. He was asked by his sister to look after his nephew Master Richard Westerley and Richard's stepsister Holly Price. These two ended up in Tyrehampton together not entirely by coincidence and Mrs Westerley pleaded with her brother to take care of "the children" hence they become the gossip of the month. Captain McPherson, himself a widower at 40 years, finds some pleasure in accompanying his proteg├ęs to dinner parties and balls. Although he never had children of his own, he has become a father-figure for the step-siblings. In town, he is known as a pleasant and good natured man. From the regular correspondance, his sister gathers that he has become quite fond of life in Tyrehampton and whilst his first concern is to see Richard married according to his status and to keep Holly out of trouble but in the line of sight of eligible young bachelor's, his sister is silently hoping that one of the young ladies of Tyrehampton might win her brother's heart and make him the happiest man on earth.
