- 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.
