    Splendid Cusack; one of my all time favourites.
    Never forget that his wife (born a Schwarzenberg, and a sister of both Felix, about-to-be Prime Minister of Austria, and Friedrich, the Cardinal Archbishop of Prague, not to mention their elder brother, lord of the family estates of more than a million acres) was foully murdered by the revolutionaries (no feeble talk of “stray bullets” here, if you please).
    This exacerbated his feelings somewhat, as might be imagined.
