I saw this on Tumblr and thought of you all. 'Considerable fums...'
When I was a kid we had several books in our house that were old enough to contain the long S. I liked to read them aloud to myself and laugh and laugh. (Ok, I was a weird little person.)
Can you not imagine the men of Edrington's mess deciding to wager considerable fums? I hope he put his money down the right way.
