The Man Cave
Father is a scholar and loves nothing better (except Mother, of course) than being surrounded by all his books and researchy stuff. Mother
nags him hints constantly about the chaos and general dilapidation of his study, but he turns a deaf ear. Today he is entertaining a guest, Mr. Frederic Schoberl, the editor of Ackermann's Repository. Mr. Schoberl made the magazine a compendium of all sorts of information. Although it is known primarily for its fashion prints today, it was officially Ackermann's Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics, and every issue was jam-packed with all of the above and more, all guided by good taste and extreme discretion. No gossip or scandal in this magazine!
