Mother Knows Best

"You should especially at such places as Turnbridge keep up a civility and dignity in your behaviour to the men of your own set, and a courteous good humour'd affability to the company in general whom you are little acquainted with, whereas I suspect, if you will examine your own conduct, you put on that killing cold look sometimes have to those you should be prevenante to, and a great deal more familiarity and ease than is either necessary or proper to the men about you..."

Lady Spencer
20 August 1778


  1. Civility at its best! Just love her! What would I give to mingle about with her...

  2. What a great image to go with that quotation! Haha!

  3. I'm glad you appreciate it because I did muse over what to put up for a while!

  4. It's a very fitting image.
