Final Word

November 3, 1995

This week's Final Word comes from a double act who created a cultural icon:

"My two dear friends came in the evening, and the last post brought a letter from Lupin in reply to mine. I read it aloud to them all. It ran: 'My dear old Guv., Keep your hair on. You are on the wrong tack again. I am engaged to be married to Lillie Girl. I did not mention it last Thursday, as it was definitely not settled. We shall be married in August, and amongst our guests we hope to see your old friends Gowing and Cummings. With much love to all, from The same old Lupin."

The winner of last week's competition, who identified E. P. Thompson's William Morris , is Linda Harding of Plymouth College of Art and Design.
