a. The bread, I will let you have, but not the wine.
b. The bread, I will let you eat, but not the strawberries.

Are the above sentences grammatically correct?

Many thanks

    They sound antiquated (from a past time), or perhaps poetic, and not something I would say or write currently.
    So, acceptable, but not currently common (and therefore in a current written text, they would sound a bit odd).

    Thank you both so much.

    How about

    c. John, I know from work, and Pete, I know through my brother.
    d. John, I see at work, and Pete, I see at the gym.

    ?

    Do they work?

    Many thanks
