Louis Killington Posted March 13, 2017 Share Posted March 13, 2017 Half Moon House - Chilchester's Townhouse A short drive ended at a carriage door that led through the soft, parchment-plaster facade of Half Moon House, the face of which is broken by numerous gleaming, white, sculpted window frames. Centering the front of the house was a pair of heavy doors featuring a bronze knocker fixed by an ornate network of celtic knots. Stretching out before the door was a set of white steps and a path of cut stones that angled through a phalanx of carefully trimmed hedges to the gate leading out to Pall Mall. A matching coachhouse and service entrance is round behind. The Earl of Chichester had called upon him in his office the day before. Basildon had been at the Royal Exchange. Having told George to stop by, it now fell to Louis to return the favor. Having arisen at the regular time, his darkie chambermaid had seen to easing that rising, as she did daily. Once dressed and fed, he was on his way the short distance to Pall Mall. Sitting inside his coach, the footman was sent to the door to see if the Earl of Chichester was receiving guests and willing to see Basildon.
