Take myself, for instance. I am a gentleman only by birth and breeding. Otherwise, pray believe I am quite unspeakable, quite. Do you not see that even my son finds me so?" He nodded towards me in graceful courtesy. "For me," he continued smoothly, "only one thing has ever remained evident, and well-defined for long, and that, my lady, is money.

I am determined to get my own living, and to be dependent upon no one. With a tolerable share of common sense, I hope, in America, to be independent and free. Rather than live otherwise, I would wish to die before my time."

To do so was to approve the despicable tone adopted in the instructions to McLane.
