Correspondence: Debts, the Queen and Crape

An interesting reply here revealing that the Boy's Own Paper would receive several varied enquiries from curious boys.

W.C.N. – 1.No man’s debts are paid by his staying away from a town, and no man with any sense of honour would think of doing such a thing. 2.The name of Her Majesty was the same after her marriage as it was before, as the slightest knowledge of history would have told you. 3.We really cannot decide questions as to the amount of crape you should wear for your grandmother.(SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1887)
