Quandary Resolution 1807
custos morum, junket, eternize, efface
The members of the press and their friends, including the Director of the Board, the real custos morum, watching against any possibility that could have corrupted public morals, or manners, or language, embraced Catherine and Jacob most enthusiastically after the film ended and the lights were turned up again, as they all found their film, ‘The Kitchen Junket’, a success, a film which filled them with a feeling which effaced everything else for two hours, a film to eternize the hearts racing out of beat, in one journalist’s words, then together with the entire cast and crew, singing and joking, they headed to a rustic estate waiting for them to celebrate, filled for the occasion, symbolically, with junkets and old wine.
