  • As you will see from this catalogue
  • said Lord John to his wife,
  • Fortnum and Mason do not just
  • unimaginatively sell such things
  • as food and drink.
  • They display before persons
  • like myself, to whom
  • the silken richness of a
  • Strasbourg pâte is as deeply
  • moving as the sheen on a
  • hunter's shoulder, all the
  • rarest treasures of the world.
