Does somebody know what "benison" means, it is in this book but not in Harraps?

Welcome to the site, richardwynne! :D

Various online dictionaries tell me that it means a blessing or benediction, usually spoken.

I hope that helps.

Is it a blessing you make before carving up that roasted 12-point buck you brought home strapped to your pickup truck? :wink:
