That and the "frock" comment brings to mind the Dickens' book Great Expectations and the character Miss Haversham. :)
Don't know the reference sorry, Dickens was no match for Waugh on matters American.

Once the mistake was realized 'The Loved One', Bill's episcopal gown with KKK point circumcised, was cleaned and made to look new for its afterlife as the second coming Emperors dream coat.
