    I noticed another pair to Cutter’s 10a in this weekend’s Guarian Prize – clue 3d, so it went straight in, with a smile.

    Sorry to be a pedant, but very minor problem spotted on Cutter’s 1832 at 13d. Should the emumeration rather read (6,4) ? Caused me a PDM.

    “Sorry to be a pedant” said no crossword solver, ever! 🙂
    Yes, it should be 6/4. Sorry for that.

    Just came to the conclusion that 13d must be 6/4 and decided to take a look at the ‘blog’ to see if anyone else agreed! Should have looked sooner.
    Pedants unite! Loving this crossword.

    Another query on enumeration, this time on 1836. If I’m right (a big “if”!) 21 down is 6,1 (not 6,2) and 23 down is 4,2 (not 4,1). But even if I have got that right it doesn’t spoil the f1; indeed the whole thing is a positive 5air!

    Having sent in my attempt at Cutter’s prize from the airport, the rest of the puzzles kept me amused on a lengthy flight to Santiago de Chile whence I send my greetings.

      Hello –
      21d is definitely two words. 23d is two words also; this puzzle has been through at least three checkers, so it’s tedious in the extreme that that wasn’t spotted. I’m really sorry.

        No apology needed. Thanks for the heads up on 21 down. I’ll need to think again!
