I notice someone referred to John Dickson Carr in a paragraph about
British authors. This author was not British at all. He was from
Uniontown, Pennsylvania . . .

Yes, of course! My point was that his Great Detective, the one who used
the word "canoodle", was supposed to be British -- and his speech
peculiarities were supposed to be indicative of Britishisms.

At least that's the partial memory I'm trying to recover.
