Dear Folks, sorry. I was trying to forward a query from Ruth Berman about  
the age or historicity or earliest date of the word 'parliament' as a sweet, and 
 managed to loose the original message from her, as well as send you an empty 
 forward. *sigh* She was talking about the word showing up in the novel 
'Lorna  Doone' and also in Conan Doyle.  Something about  a kid buying  'parliament 
and dumps' for his friends. (And now I've lost the printed copy too.  just 
not my day.)
