1800s Advice and Etiquette for Men

A seeming ignorance is very often a most neces sary part of worldly knowledge. It is , for instance , commonly advisable to seem ignorant of what people offer to tell you ; and when they say, ' Have not you heard of such a thing ?' to answer, 'No ;' and to let them go on, though you know it already.
