  1. David

    28 Across Solution is nuptial. Court proceeding: is that trial? But there’s no ‘r’ in nuptial.

  2. David Sedgwick

    Nuptial of 28 across : trial is a court session – but no r in nuptial? Error??

    Hi David… I don’t think it’s an error, I think Kropotkin here is just trying to provide a definition based on a play on words.

    ‘After course session I do take this woman in such proceedings’ means ‘I have courted her, now I take her as my wife (by saying “I do”) by means of nuptial proceedings. ‘ The reference to ‘court’ and ‘proceedings’ are red herrings really to make the reader thinks its about a trial.

    Not one of Kropotkin’s most successful clues to my mind 🙂
