Tulkinghorn, who is something of an old fashioned gentleman himself, was surprised to hear that Ashurst Morris Crisp partners have been having sessions with a palmist. All very new age for a traditional City firm. On further investigation, it turned out the person in the head scarf was actually a legal recruiter who does a bit of palm-reading on the side. Rumour has it that the palmist was overheard saying something along the lines of: "You've had a difficult year with a partner, whose name starts with Fâ€¦ er, maybe Frank. But you were never right for each other. Now you'll have to go it aloneâ€¦" However, this rumour remains unconfirmed. Mind you, if the firm is looking for a 'new age' kind of partner, perhaps it should consider Pillsbury Winthrop. According to a US source, there is one senior Pillsbury partner who is well known for regularly hosting seances. You never know, if the stars are in alignment, Ashursts might even pull it off.
