Demosthenes and Lysias overdo inventio, dispositio, elocutio and memoria – but are okay with actio.

We now meet Felix Karlosoroff, wandering anxiously along the beach. He lives in a Regency pile which he can no longer afford to maintain.  His partner, Frab (short for Ferabdurus Lotus), has persuaded him to relocate to a small mews studio (near that of Yevgeny Huxtable), but the move depends on selling the pile. So he worries as he wanders, and he comes across the diminutive figure of Tabitha Atributeho, who by chance is looking for a property. He invites her to view the large, loved, but sadly dilapidated building, and she falls in love with it. All looks very promising.
