Hi, happy new year to you
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(page 386, chapter 17) by Lawrence (planetebook,here):
(background: Connie was in Venice, in a stupor of happiness. Then she received a letter from Clifford, saying Mellors' truant wife had returned. .……")
I(Clifford) repeat this from hearsay, as Mellors has not come to me personally. I had this particular bit of local(=nearby?) garbage from our garbage bird, our ibis(it likes garbage?), our scavenging turkey-buzzard, Mrs Bolton. I would not have repeated it had she not exclaimed: her Ladyship will go no more to the wood if that woman’s going to be about!
The part in blue is very confusing for me. What does Clifford mean by local garbage, ibis, and scavenging turkey-buzzard please? Or, why does he call Mr Bolton that way?
Thank you in advance
