Sorry, Anne, but I'm not going to give away the secret. However, if you can lay your hands on the terrific BBC (or was it Granada?) television broadcast (now on DVD) of the Parliametary novels, you can find out. All the actors very are good, but Susan Hampshire, as Glencora, is terrific. Actually, so is Plantagenet, but I can't remember who plays him.

PS They were made in the late 1970s, I think.

Jenny --

I'd suggest the following:

Cliquot == kleek-oh
Peers' == peers
110s a dozen == a hundred and ten shillings a dozen

(that's 5 pounds ten shillings for a dozen bottles of champagne -- a pretty good bargain by today's standards, but perhaps not in the 19th century). Madame Cliquot presumably was the proprietress of what today is called Veuve Cliquot (the widow Cliquot) and in the US today a single bottle would probably set you back $60 or $70. No doubt a historian of champagne could give more accurate information. It's not a drink I particularly care for. Just as well at that price.

Anne,

Thanks so much for catching the duplicate phrase in chapter 15. Here's the corrected version:

um, how shall i pronounce the ff:

Cliquot (klick-oh?) (klik-ot?)
Peers' (peer-ses?) (peers?)

also I came across this phrase:
"When a man pays 110s. a dozen for his champagne"

(one-tens?) (one hundred and tens?) what does this mean anyway?


jenny
I'll put you down for 9 and 10 - think your other question has been answered
Welcome to the project
