Finished ok, but cannot fully parse 24ac, which should be patently obvious, but maybe I had one too many Amontillado's...."Find out cleric is delightful" (6). I believe it to be "Divine" which works with both "Find out" and with "delightful". But where does the "cleric is" fit in? Please stop sniggering all you clever people...!!

Chambers dictionary says 'divine' is also ' a minister of the gospel, a theologian'. And a cleric is a minister, so it works out.

I looked up cleric in my thesaurus and divine is given as a definition. So I'm not clever or sniggering!

Many thanks to both of you. I am duly educated yet again!
The more you learn, the more you realise you don't know!
Thus was ever true...
