“There are certain sensible rules of etiquette which have come down from one cultured generation to another, and have stood the test of time. These are observed in the best circles in Europe and America, and are to society what common law is the body politic. Of these, no man who is ambitious to win in society, or in business life, can afford to be ignorant or unobservant.”
