: Drats...missed that one! However, I'm not sure Alice would've been too quick on the uptake by that point. As you say, she was more or less in a state of shock. Perhaps it would have been more merciful if she hadn't realized the implications of Hawkeye's words.
It is entirely possible that she would have been oblivious, Jeri. I've always thought she was one feather shy of a warbonnet by that time, anyway! (If you've read any of the old archived posts, you may have come across Miss Marcia's breakfast menu, which included Coddled Eggs a la Alice, served with the yolks staring blankly about!) But I do believe we are supposed to assume that she knows by then, else wouldn't Cora have hissed, "NATHANIEL!! I TOLD you to say NOTHING to Alice!!!"???
hehe...can't you just see her scolding him at that point?
