While I feel that a lot of loose ends got tied up in the final few episodes, I daresay readers may still have a few questions about how certain things turned out? Or indeed about things that happened in existing text.

With a proviso that in some cases there may be [spoilers] involved with respect to snippets in process or projected.

Honestly, I am most curious about what adult Flora and Hannah are up to, but that takes us into a whole other generation and any number of possible trajectories ...

I sincerely hope that the lady who is no longer Mrs D- K- has a happy marriage out in Nova Scotia, and no one ever finds out about

Who does Sebastian K wed? Does he wed? Do his father and Mrs P find true comfort together in a surprisingly respectable fashion?

Oh, and how Josh ends up as an adult. I have always wondered about his future. (And Bess and Meg, as above).

Apparently, what I actually want is The Comfortable Courtesan: The Next Generation, which is really an excessive request ...

What happens to all the little F's? Are C and J and E ever able to happily triangulate in a little country house somewhere away from prying eyes? Does Flora ever know who her other mother was?

How did Sandy and Lord G- R- meet in the first place? And what is Sandy's family background?

Also, does Meg enjoy school when she goes?

Also, what was the situation that made it prudent that C both cease writing her memoirs, and hide them?

O was going to ask after the F-'s, but I see you've already covered that. ❤

Does Docket ever retire? How well do they manage her health issues? And do she and Biddy Smith ever have a romantic entanglement, or are they just good friends?

What happens to Julius and Hannah? It sounds like Hannah at least stays attached to Clorinda and the F-'s for some time.

Is Milord ever forced to marry, or are he and Sandy able to be devoted "bachelors" forever?

(I imagine the question of whether C and Sandy ever do knock boots might be better left to fanfiction...)

I'm going to be so sad to have less excuse to use these icons, haha.

Oh and a question about existing plotline:

Julia P-, the one who grew up in India, got married to....Lord H- or something? Whose son was also a suitor?

Wasn't one of them also the Lord Handsy that Clorinda kept having to warn all the women about? Which one did Julia marry, and was she happy?

Does Matt Johnson have a successful rest of his career?

Does Dolly Mutton's home for retired prostitutes continue to prosper?

Was Mrs K sick all along with the illness that eventually killed her, or were her earlier bouts of ill health unrelated?

How did Mr T find out that the mathematically inclined governess he corresponded with was actually Miss G? Did she tell him or did he figure it out himself?

Does the erstwhile Lady N- grow to enjoy her conjugal duties? I hope she does, yet I'm concerned what a pregnancy would do to her in her invalid state. (Does Clorinda teach her about sponges? It seems very improper, and yet...)

I also wonder how Frau P- avoids increase with Mr K-.

Oh, the book of "female philosophy" that Clorinda found so prepossessing--did you have a particular book in mind?
