A co-author and I are writing a book on vintage port, and have found in Recollections of Old Country Life (1894), J K Fowler, a mention: “I sold six dozen of the original port to Messrs. Spiers & Pond through their well-known buyer Mr. William Hudson, at a moderate price”.
So S&P were selling port. Please, does anybody have copies of The Housekeeper? Does it list the vintage ports for sale? If so, please please contact me, either via my ‘public email’ firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the contact information on http://www.jdawiseman.com/author.html
