in consequence of the missive, Why olive branch?, penned by Srirup
The use of olive-branch to mean offspring drives from Psalm 128, Verse 3: "Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house; thy children like olive plants round about thy table." Such an allusion, one both pedantic and biblical, is appropriate for Mr. Collins. (Shepard)
