Annotations[edit]

Pardon, monsieur     (French) Excuse me, sir. Lenehan is noted for his frequent use of French. Joyce's principal model for Lenehan was Michael Hart, a friend's of Joyce's father who died around 1900; Hart too had a habit of speaking French.[1] See 657.20, where Bloom recalls the death of Hart.


anno Domini     (Latin) in the year of our Lord.[2] Lenehan is using the phrase Anno Domini in a Pickwickian sense, meaning years.
