Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

As a country-house visitor Miss Du Cane was altogether desirable. She had her place, and that a high one, in the world of house-parties. And many people wondered at this, for not only was she very little known in London society, but there was about her an absence of that self-assertiveness which is generally supposed to militate against the acquirement of small privileges. There was nothing of the expert guest whose remarks may be said in their entire aptness and suitability to border upon professionalism. Nor was she even one of the useful guests who can be depended upon by tired hostesses to take a good deal of trouble off their hands, and to play games good-temperedly, and to become enthusiastic about taking some rural walk, or to laugh a great deal over small country-house jokes. Miss Du Cane scharm was not of the commercial sort which demands advantage or profit for what it gives, and the high place where she was established had not been paid for punctually either by an embarrassing amount of tact or by that sometimes pathetic form of activity which is known as trying to be useful.
