A splendid fellow

I like the sound of the American writer, Henry James's butler immensely. He clearly never gave a fiddler's flute no matter how much James remonstrated with him about his flamboyant style of service. Below is the description poet Ford Madox Hueffer gave after dining at Lamb House in Rye where the author lived.


I would have enjoyed the spectacle!
