DT 27642

Last in two nice bits of misdirection:

Brilliant to splash out on papers, quids in (8) = SPLENDID

splash out = SPEND, papers = ID, quids in = quid’s in, in = containment, quid = L

A cry for help about ultimate in dangerous material (8) = ASBESTOS

A = A, cry for help = SOS, ultimate = BEST

Another appearance for that essayist:

Like some poems of Lamb about, say, cold (7) = ELEGIAC

Lamb = ELIA (see DT 27631 Essays of Elia), about = containment, say = EG, cold = C
