Emma, Volume II, Chapter 7 (Chapter 25)



Frank Churchill goes to London.

For a haircut. Sixteen miles' travel each way. How very shallow of him.

Everyone in town is willing to cut him some slack, except for Mr Knightley.


Emma wants an invitation to the Coles' party.

So she can reject it. How very petty of her.

Only then she decides to get her friends to talk her into going. And her father obsesses over it.

I read somewhere that "I'm going to get my hair cut" was a euphemism for "I'm going to see a prostitute". Have you any information? 'Cause if it was, then... well. Now I know, and you know what he was doing in London(he was not seeing a prostitute, for those of you who haven't read this before), but... Just something that made me go hmmm.

I've not come across that euphemism (and I tried a bit of Google magic tonight to see if I could find it), but I'd love to think it's so.
