Dear Abby,

My life seems perfect here in England: I have a beautiful wife (you should see her golden locks!), a lovely daughter, a compassionate and hardworking father-in-law. I don’t want to lose my perfect life but something has come up from my past. One of my old servants at the Chateau of the Marquis needs my help in France. I am scared to travel in France with the Revolutionaries’ uprisings but I cannot let this man die on my account. However, I cannot leave my family. I cannot tell them either. My poor wife cannot handle that kind of stress; she has enough of her shoulders with the loss of our son. Oh, Abby, what do I do?
