And as a high moral tone can hardly be said to conduce very much to either one?s health or one?s happiness, in order to get up to town I have always pretended to have a younger brother of the name of Ernest, who lives in the Albany, and gets into the most dreadful scrapes.
...If it wasn?t for Bunbury?s extraordinary bad health, for instance, I wouldn?t be able to dine with you at Willis?s to-night, for I have been really engaged to Aunt Augusta for more than a week.
...Well, I know, of course, how important it is not to keep a business engagement, if one wants to retain any sense of the beauty of life, but still I think you had better wait till Uncle Jack arrives.
...Considering that we have been engaged since February the 14th, and that I only met you to-day for the first time, I think it is rather hard that you should leave me for so long a period as half an hour.
...And what makes his conduct all the more heartless is, that he was perfectly well aware from the first that I have no brother, that I never had a brother, and that I don?t intend to have a brother, not even of any kind.
