    Excerpt from Good for Nothing, Vol. 1 of 2: All Down Hill

    What thinks her high-born mistress, the Lady Ger trude, an earl's sister and a sovereign's god-child? With the wholesome fear of Burke and Debrett before my eyes, I suppress the proper name of the noble maiden. Shall I involve myself in an action for libel at the suit of a distinguished family? Shall I pander to the morbid taste of that numerous and respectable class who make it their especial study to identify the persons of the aristocracy and chronicle their deeds? Vade retro - be it far from me! The titled daughters Of England are classed and ticketed in certain cata lognes published by authority, with mercantile fidelity. With the same accuracy that is at once his pride and his profession, in measuring her Off a thousand yards of tulle for the trimming of her ball-dress, can John Ell worthy, the mercer, calculate to a day the age of Lady Hildegonda Vavasour. Her ladyship is debarred by the remnants of feudalism from the very birthright of lowlier women, never to exceed seven-and-twenty. Like those high-bred Arab steeds which the children of the desert offer for purchase to the Feringhee, there can be no concealment of her age or her performances; and she is sold, so to speak, with her pedigree about her neck. Be gentle with her in her new capacity; like all thorough-bred animals she is stanch and resolute for good and for evil.
