— Grattan and Flood wrote for this very paper, the editor cried in his face. Irish volunteers. Where are you now? Established 1763. Dr Lucas. Who have you now like John Philpot Curran? Psha!

— Well, J.J. O'Molloy said, Bushe K.C., for example.

Seymour Bushe, King's Counsel
missing from 1901 census?

— Bushe? the editor said. Well, yes: Bushe, yes. He has a strain of it in his blood. Kendal Bushe or I mean Seymour Bushe.

— He would have been on the bench long ago, the professor said, only for... But no matter.

adultery/drink: "It seems that a certain Sir ___ Brook and his wife were rather estranged, and that on a certain occasion the husband followed his wife to Dublin. He eventually found his wife in the room of Mr. Bushe and threatened to take proceedings against him. As there was no divorce in Ireland, these proceedings would consist in the tort of 'Criminal Conversation,' whereby the husband would sue the alleged co-respondent for damages for adultery. It is for this reason that I understand Mr. Bushe left.... He also drank heavily." [cite]

J.J. O'Molloy turned to Stephen and said quietly and slowly:

— One of the most polished periods I think I ever listened to in my life fell from the lips of Seymour Bushe. It was in that case of fratricide, the Childs murder case. Bushe defended him.

"periods" = sentences crafted to delay resolution until the last word

Childs (cf p96)

And in the porches of mine ear did pour.

Hamlet I.v "And in the porches of my ears did pour The leperous distilment"

By the way how did he find that out? He died in his sleep. Or the other story, beast with two backs?

Hamlet I.v "won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming-virtuous queen"
Othello I.1.104 'IAGO I am one, sir, that comes to tell you your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs.'

— What was that? the professor asked.

mistress (female teacher) of the arts

— He spoke on the law of evidence, J.J. O'Molloy said, of Roman justice as contrasted with the earlier Mosaic code, the lex talionis. And he cited the Moses of Michelangelo in the Vatican.

(not the Vatican)

— Ha.


— A few wellchosen words, Lenehan prefaced. Silence!

Pause. J.J. O'Molloy took out his cigarette case.

False lull. Something quite ordinary.

Messenger took out his matchbox thoughtfully and lit his cigar.

"Messenger" English surname?

I have often thought since on looking back over that strange time that it was that small act, trivial in itself, that striking of that match, that determined the whole aftercourse of both our lives.

"that... that... that... that... that... that"


J.J. O'Molloy resumed, moulding his words:

like a sculptor

— He said of it: that stony effigy in frozen music, horned and terrible, of the human form divine, that eternal symbol of wisdom and of prophecy which, if aught

"frozen music" = architecture, usually

"human form divine"
