'Traditions in Elegance: Travelling Exhibition of 100 Teapots from the
Norwich Castle Museum, UK'
This is an exhibition of the traditions of tea and tea-drinking from the
middle of the 18th into the 19th Century. It is sponsored, in part, by
Twinings, and one of the speakers will be Samuel G. Twining. I do not
have an e-mail address for this exhibition. The phone number of the
Museum is 905 468 3912.

officers. I recall that there was an officer in the 41st who ran up an
enormous tea-bill in the mess, and was disciplined by his fellows for
Hope to see many of you at a soggy Stoney Creek!!!
