Daily Dose

From Ian Fleming, by Andrew Lycett


"As Ian discovered on the morning of their departure, they were scheduled to share a sleeper and a picnic dinner consisting of a partridge and half a bottle of vin de pays.  Not having the tenacity Rupert Hart-Davis had shown during his train journey with Eve in 1929, he arranged the wagon-lits equivalent of an upgrade.  But he had to carry her jewel case and gall-bladder X-rays, while arranging porters for her fourteen cabin trunks."

From Chapter 14, Kent and Wiltshire
