  • Don't regret invitations for dinner. That is wrong. Accept or regret invitations to dinner. Remember that they have saddle of mutton for dinner. Guests are asked to dinner.

  • Don't bring prejudices to other people's houses. Your worst enemy must be treated with special courtesy when you meet him or her at dinner. It will be all the more fun to cut him the next day.

  • Don't keep prompt guests waiting for tardy ones. Wait ten minutes for a man and fifteen for a woman or a couple, and then go in to dinner. If the persons late are socially important, they know better. If unavoidably detained they will prefer that there is no delay on their account.
