== September 4, 1925: a bone to pick ==
Lady Auckland is vexed. It seems that she received a loaf which contained a piece of bone. She sent it to the Inspector of Foods Department, London, who referred her to the Ministry of Health, who in turn referred her to the County Analyst.It was a bone-headed thing to do. The Ministry should have known, of course, that a titled lady should have been treated differently from a plebeian citizen.Lady Auckland wrote to the Standard Bread Crusader about it - the refuge of anyone with a grievance about bread - and her remarks on the Ministry of Health were reported to be very uncomplimentary. This should be a lesson to the Ministry not to tamper with the delicate feelings of a titled lady, outraged by seeing a piece of bone in her bread.
