    Excerpt from Nuts and Chestnuts

    Observe that, in this instance, the outrage was deliberate, that it had not the excuse of irrita tion, and - more wonderful still - that the lady condoned it.

    In connection with this and as throwing light on the social licence of the past, it may be worth while to record an experience of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu which, though tame when compared with those mentioned above, sounds strange to modern ears. It rests on the authority of Lady Louisa Stuart, who had access to Lady Mary's private diary.

    She (lady Mary) had one evening a particular engage ment that made her wish to be dismissed (by George I.) unusually early; she explained her reasons to the Duchess of Kendal, and the Duchess informed the King who, after a few complimentary remonstrances, appeared to acquiesce. But, when he saw her about to take her leave, he began battling the point afresh, declaring it was unfair and per fidious to cheat him in such a manner, and saying many other fine things, in spite of which she at last contrived to escape. At the foot of the great stairs she ran against Secre tary Craggs just coming in, who stopped her to inquire what was the matter - were the company put off? She told him why she went away, and how urgently the King had pressed her to stay longer; possibly dwelling on that head with some small complacency. Mr. Craggs made no remark; but, when he had heard all, snatching her up in his arms as a nurse carries a child, he ran at full Speed with her upstairs, de posited her within the antechamber, kissed both her hands respectfully (still not saying a word), and vanished.
