Description

This book is intended to allow its readers to access the guidelines of etiquette that allow them to be of the "best society," which the author states "is not a fellowship of the wealthy, nor does it seek to exclude those who are not of exalted birth; but it is an association of gentle-folk, of which good form in speech, charm of manner, knowledge of the social amenities and instinctive consideration for the feelings of others, are the credentials by which society the world over recognizes its chosen members." The book has several illustrations throughout.

This final portion of the book discusses the country house, house parties in camp, notes and letters, clubs and club etiquette, sports, business and politics etiquette, clothing, home manners, traveling, and "the growth of good taste in America."
