This act- of osu-iuntion m.ny he looked upon as an interesting little chemical experiment, proving-, as it doer, that her wine was acid and that her pearls wore nlknlino. There i* no record as to whether the pearls really &lt;!:«'. diswuhv. but- if they did they :nt:^T liavc ^:vea off carbonie and imparted a ' iir.K'' to the wine.
