Excerpt: ?Horry! I am sick to death of it!? There was a servant in the room gathering the tea?cups; but Lady Betty Stafford, having been brought up in the purple, was not to be deterred from speaking her mind by a servant. Her cousin was either more prudent or less vivacious; he did not answer on the instant, but stood looking through one of the windows at the leafless trees and slow?dropping rain in the Mall, and only turned when Lady Betty pettishly repeated her statement. ?Had a bad time?? he then vouchsafed, dropping into a chair near her, and looking first at her, in a good?natured way, and then at his boots, which he seemed to approve. ?Horrid!? she replied. ?Many people here?? ?Hordes of them! Whole tribes!? she exclaimed. She was a little lady, plump and pretty, with a pale, clear complexion, and bright eyes. ?I am bored beyond belief. And?and I have not seen Stafford since morning,? she added. ?Cabinet council?? ?Yes!? she answered viciously. ?A cabinet council, and a privy council, and a board of trade, and a board of green cloth, and all the other boards! Horry, I am sick to death of it! What is the use of it all??
