I cried, "for one note of that would send me overboard!" He was so attentive that I had little chance to talk to the young officers I met. But several of them have called since, and I have been out to a lot of teas and dinners and things with them. The one I like best is a young fellow from Vermont. He is very clever and jolly and we have great fun together.

It was a kind of emulation among all young men in the North who should be foremost to dishonour and ruin himself with this infamous woman. Madame Chevalier and her husband now live here in grand style, and have their grand parties, grand teas, grand assemblies, and grand balls. Their hotel, I am assured, is even visited by the Bonapartes and by the members of the foreign diplomatic corps.

The Polkingtons were of those people who do not dine. They lunched, though few besides Johnny Gillat, who did not count, had been invited to share that meal with them. They took tea, the daintiest, pleasantest, most charming of teas, as the élite of Marbridge knew; everybody or, rather, a selection of everybody, had had tea with them one time or another.

He could hardly restrain his joy. "I think next Saturday yes, next Saturday," consulting the letter in her hand. "Where? At Mr. Grayson's rooms?" cried Jack. "Yes, at her brother's, she says. Here, Jack you read it. Some number in East Fifteenth Street queer place for people to live, isn't it, Garry? people who want anybody to come to their teas.

By many people Sir Nigel was not analysed, but accepted. He was of the early English who came to New York, and was a novelty of interest, with his background of Manor House and village and old family name.
