Notes It is sheer luck that Squire Haggard has not been hanged ... yet.  A loutish, fat drunk who routinely downs four bottles of Madeira before meals, he owes money to almost everyone.  Together with his son, Roderick, a handsome lecher wtih his own scandalous past, they hatch scheme after scheme to raise desperately needed funds.
Come along for the ride as the Haggards swagger their way through eighteenth-century England, cheating tradesmen, seducing servant wenches and working their roguish charm on everyone they meet.

Based on the novel "Squire Haggard's Journal", by Michael Green.
