in consequence of the missive, The Pines of Northanger...With apologies to Rhespighi…., penned by JulieW
Goodness, I've heard pineapples were considered as symbols of wealth and status, nt to mention hospitality.
Maybe General Tilney hoped to give Catherine a feeling of luxury and plenty awaiting her at Northanger Abbey.
I've heard pineapples were expensive fruit in the C18th, but I had no real idea about pineries.
Isn't General Tilney a materialistic old snob ;)
