Prudence Edit

Lieutenant Broadwattle is the first officer sent to greet the Spotted Custard upon its arrival in India. He is sent on the behalf of Brigadier Featherstonehaugh. Broadwattle invites Rue and Prim to a garden party that evening. There he reveals that he is an agent of Lord Akeldama, but as a last minute substitute. Her original point of contact would have been Mrs. Featherstonehaugh, had she not been "kidnapped."
