I have made out a list of my measurements and colors of breeches, waistcoats, and coats that I would like. The gentlemen’s current whim toward those tight-knitted pantaloons are, unfortunately, out of the question. ’’ ‘‘Say we can dish you up to play the young gentleman. You still must approach the Marquess of Oberlon. From what I hear, he’s a powerful gentleman and an acclaimed sportsman. You tell me that you will have your revenge on him for your brother—but how, Miss Hetty? ’’ Hetty’s eyes clouded.
Hetty had worried about her soft white hands, but had discarded gloves. She would worry no longer. Sir Harry poked Scuddy in the ribs. ‘‘His name’s actually Mr. Thayerton Scuddimore, but we don’t like to hang the poor fellow with that mouthful, so Scuddy it is. ’’ So far, so good, she thought to herself. Both Harry and Scuddy appeared bluff and good-natured. She couldn’t help but wonder just how they would have introduced themselves had they known she was a female. Sir Harry turned to gaze at the now empty stage.
At least half a dozen black-clad footmen moved unobtrusively about the room, quantities of drink held on large silver trays. A closer look showed her that the occupants of the room were a far cry from the habitue´ s of Almack’s. There were many more ladies than gentlemen present, and though LORD HARRY 55 they were garbed in keeping with the elegance of the room, there was more white bosom showing than Hetty ever considered possible without showing a navel as well. She noticed with growing dread that although conversation appeared lively and high giggling laughter was a commonplace amongst the ladies, the gentlemen still managed to caress and stroke any unclothed flesh that was near to them.
