Thanks.  That's quite a nice composition, though I'm not 
sure the choice of methods is quite perfect for what I'm 
after – though I appreciate you chose them because they are 
the 13 plain methods from the diary.  Specifically:

  * I'm not sure I'd choose to have both Double Norwich and

  * three very similar little methods seems unnecessary; and

  * I found including both Highbury and Edmonton was
    surprisingly difficult, and might avoid it;

  * although I'm not adverse to including irregular methods,
    Single Canterbury doesn't feel like its serving a purpose
    in that composition.
