Emily Post

Emily Post by Covarrubias (Vanity Fair, December 1933)

"In accepting an invitation for lunch or dinner after which you are going
to a game, or any sort of performance, you must not be late! Nothing is 
more unfair to others who are keen about whatever it is you are going to 
see, than to make them miss the beginning of a performance through your thoughtless selfishness."

Excerpt from:The Project Gutenberg of Etiquette-by Emily Post
