Bonjour Bob,
I will give you a couple for the minute.
7a is ODEA (I think!)4d is MVULE mule being the
hybrid bedding V.
Hope this is enough to counteract the vin rouge!
Bon chance Mon Ami,
Jerry

Hi Bob,
5d is DONING,15d you are probably spelling the word in here with an S it should be C which gives 31a C to start with. 24a is MANRENT.
I am very pleased I am not the only wino and nicotinic in the world!

Hi Bobb,

I reckon that 5d is DONING ('giving' as in Donation). On that basis, your 10a may be incorrect - I think it starts with INVO..

Hope this helps. Btw, I have only done about half of this so far. It's a compiler's revenge after last week !

Regards,
Alan

Jerry,

I'm attempting Mephisto (2543) again for the first time in ages and although the right side is looking OK, the left side is a bit barren. If you are still around, could you help with 1 ac? I have ----md-- and with 26 ac - I have nothing! Thanks.

Hi Eleanor,
This is a stinker this week 1a is QALAMDAN,sometimes spelt with a K.
26a is EOTHEN meaning from the East.
Suggest you look up both words in St.Chambers gospel.
Best wishes,
Jerry

Hi Eleanor,

Apologies to Jerry if he's about to reply !

1a is QALAMDAN but don't ask for a detailed explanation ! It fits with my down answers anyway.

This is quite a tough one to come back to ! I still have four answers to get after quite a bit of effort !
