Rabies & Amphetamines

Many challenges in updating the tale of Childe Burun/Harold/Byron closing in.  What to do with Harold recklessly wiping the slaver off Boatswain the dog when it got rabies? There hasn’t been a case of rabies in the U.K. since 1922.

Harold/Byron goes from being a fat, lame boy to a slender, beautiful young man with a rolling gait, by eating 1/2 pound of meat a day with some wine, mostly water and wearing great coat and 3 layers of waistcoats while playing cricket.  Today he would probably use uppers.

This is not your father’s Childe.
