  1. What were these people thinking? Terror and Erebus indeed.

    Among the more gossipy historical footnotes I ever heard, John Renbourn used to tell the story that Franklin got handed that gig because he was having an affair with a Sea Lord’s wife. Who knows if that’s true, but perhaps some people were thinking one thing and others were thinking something else.
