The gentlemen's book of etiquette

The gentlemen's book of etiquette, and Manual of politeness

By CECIL B. HARTLEY

1860

Politeness may be extended to the lowest and meanest, and you will never by thus extending it detract
from your own dignity. A gentleman may and will treat his washerwoman with respect and courtesy, and
his boot-black with pleasant affability, yet preserve perfectly his own position. To really merit the name of a polite, finished gentleman, you must be polite at all times and under all circumstances.
