Quandary Resolution 2936
manciple, recompensing, temporize, eisegesis

For his not voluntarily recompensing The Bullingdon Club for several clumsy breakages at the champagne breakfast, its members did not temporise but forthwith summoned the wretched manciple to appear before them, charging him that (according to their befuddled eisegesis of an obscure probity clause in his contract) every bottle smashed should immediately be replaced by at least two of the same or better quality.
