  1. As one who has lived here for 17 years, I can tell you that the Richmond, Virginia suburb is hen-RYE-ko County, not hen-REE-ko.

    1. Thank you for sharing, I would have to dig deeper into my Virginia history to really say for certain, but I wonder if the pronunciation has changed since the region’s original settlement.

      Either way. Hope you enjoyed. Cheers

  2. I am curious as to why Zach attributes Ben Jonson’s poem on the death from the plague of his oldest child (Benjamin, the child of his right hand) to a connection with Prince Henry. Jonson wrote a masque for Henry, the Barriers, in 1609 but his folio includes no mention of the recently deceased Henry at all.

    1. Hi Margaret – I’ll pass the commen =t back to Zach, and see what he says…and hi by the way! Haven’t forgotten Madge…

    2. Apologies. I would have to really go back into my notes to see why, but I should have instead said that that the Historian I was referencing used it as way to capture England’s loss of Henry.

      My apologies for the confusion, caused by my writing. I must have mixed up my Jonson notes with Eulogy notes, as that was simply meant to be the historian “eulogizing” Henry Frederick.

      Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed. Cheers
