    Default patronised in person

    Hola. ¿Cómo se traduciría "patronised" en la frase siguiente?: More frequently I see the grand programme collapse, and the final scene of the drama played out in the Vice-Chancellor´s Court or else patronised in person by the Chief Judge in Bankruptcy, to say nothing of a host of clamorous creditors.
    El texto procede de la novela The haunted house at Latchford, escrita por Charlotte Riddell y publicada en 1872.
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    No, se trata del verbo "patronise".

    mmmm
    y "tratar con condescendencia"? porque no me parece que en este contexto esté bien "patrocinar", porque no es como "sponsor".
    Qué opinan?

    Sí, el sentido pasa por "actuar con aires de superioridad", "con condescendencia", "subestimar".

    ¡Qué imagen!

    El fracaso del programa se debe a que las autoridades minimizan el problema ante el clamor de los acreedores.
