    Family Wardrobe

    Friends,

    What could Poe mean by "family wardrobe?" here. Is it a type of a wardrobe—big, tall, huge etc? https://poestories.com/read/systemoftarr.

    "Oh, a very long time, indeed — a month certainly — how much longer I can't precisely say. In the mean time,
    the lunatics had a jolly season of it — that you may swear. They doffed their own shabby clothes, and made free
    with the family wardrobe and jewels. The cellars of the chateau were well stocked with wine; and these madmen
    are just the devils that know how to drink it. They lived well, I can tell you."
    2015 is the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide - the first genocide of the 20th century.

    Mher, I noticed that your last four posts have been short excerpts from full sentences but, in your titles, you have capitalised every word. That's not right. It's OK to capitalise the first word (although in your cases, it's not necessary) but it's not right to capitalise the words after that.

    The title of this thread, for example, should have been either "Family wardrobe" or "family wardrobe".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Ok. I will take it into account. I thought headers are always capitalized in English.
