    Default acknowledging a testimonial

    Peek does have the power to make clever connections. He once attended a Shakespeare festival sponsored by a philanthropist known by the initials O.C., whose laryngitis threatened to keep him from acknowledging a testimonial.

    What exactly does it mean?

    Thanks.

    Default Re: acknowledging a testimonial

    I presume it means that someone would have offered thanks to the sponsor, but he would not have been able to say anything in reply.
