And this is a surprise? Surely you can find deeper connections.

It turns out that 53 was Barrie's age when he was made a Baronet by George V. Further, GLP is now in his 56th year which is the arithmetic mean of the page refs you cite. It's also just 56 steps from the old Charing Cross sign to the boy that sold him the bootblack on pg 19 which just happens to be GLP's age when he first walked into Druquer & sons trying to understand pipe tobacco.

It's a twisted world. 8O :lol:

If you sort the blend names of the classic collection in ascending order you'll also get the declining order for the amount of Latakia in the blends.
LOL! One of these things is not like the others.... All the blend names in the Classic Collection refer to places, all but one are in England. Which one is not and where is it?
