Interested in Language
Can anybody enlighten me on the meaning of the phrase "in keeping" in the context below?
"I had no idea," said I, "that so strange a laboratory existed."
"The products," he answered, "are in keeping. Look at this flask!"
Aleister Crowley, The Drug, 1909
If something is in keeping, it follows a pattern, so I would guess that the products are as strange as the laboratory.
