BeschreibungExcerpt from Set in Authority
It would be hard to contrive a friendly description of Lady Thame's drawing-room. One would be obliged to do it in perpetual fear of the suddenly invidious, the thing said in the real rage of that pain which furniture and ornament can so unintentionally inflict. In the end it would be necessary to deny oneself emotion, and make it a catalogue raisonne, or perhaps to abandon it altogether in favour of Lady Thame herself. There would be relief as well as justice in acknowledging that Lady Thame might sit among any surroundings, and they would always be adventitious and trifling, though she had selected them personally and entirely. They spoke for so small a part of her. Her drawing-room referred to Lady Thame in much the same proportion as it referred to Cavendish Square, outside, or as Cavendish Square referred to Great Britain, further outside. It was quite subordinate, and the conviction that it was negligible did much to help one to stay in it.
