The Boudoir Cabal free pdf Excerpt from The Boudoir Cabal: A Novel of Society "I am glad, too, to be home, Mr. Deedes," laughed Lord Mayrose, affectionately shaking the lawyer's hand, and throwing a circular glance round him as if he knew the old room by heart. "It seems an age since I went away, yet looking at you I can think it was but yesterday." "Oh my lord, five years are a heavy sum out of a shrunken purse of years like mine-" and the lawyer wheeled his client an arm-chair near the glowing fire. "To you, however, who have abundance of years in store - a very rich abundance, I trust-the dime has no doubt sped by like a holiday." "Heigh! well, not so much like a holiday as that," answered the peer, sinking with comfortable enjoyment into the chair, and crossing his feet over the fender. "The more I travelled the better I learned that there is no place like England, Mr. Deedes. The Turks did not cure me of home-love, no more did the Yankees." "Such is the impression which I myself have derived from foreign travel," meditatively rejoined Mr. Deedes, whose adventures as an explorer ranged from the Grand Hotel in Paris to the Hotel Bellevue at Brussels- and he proceeded to clean his gold-rimmed double eye-glass with the tail of his coat, the better to scrutinize the young peer whom he had known from his childhood and esteemed. He was an ancient and venerable limb of the law was Mr. Deedes. His features had not changed since his client's eye had first beheld them somewhere about the date when Lord Eldon was Chancellor. The black swallow-tail coat he wore was part of his belief in constitutional safe-guards, like wigs and costs- and the rest of his apparel was shepherd's-plaid trousers, a black cravat which went twice round his neck and would have obligingly gone a third round if desired, a tape watch-cord, and low shoes with strings to them. Time seemed to have grown afraid of him in his augustness. It had marked no rude crows-feet under his eyes, and only cast a little additional snow into his hair now and then as if from powder-puff and afar. Lord Mayroso examined the lawyer at the same time as he was being himself peered at, and with a like benevolence. It refreshed him to see this legal bulwark of his property and family secrets in as good repair as a quick-set hedge, and as he talked of the men and things he had seen abroad he came back frequently to this point, that he had met with no one who compensated him for Mr. Deedes. The solicitor lent a flattered ear to all this, and scanned the peer's remarks with an occasional smile, as if the foreigners described were so many harmless lunatics whom the Court of Chancery indulgently suffered to be at large, and whose fated mission here below was to afford diversion to British noblemen and their solicitors. Then, when Lord Mayrose paused after a while, stretching his Baltimore Boots more enjoyably than ever towards the coals, he said: - "And now, my lord, we may hope you have come back to settle down and take your proper place in society!" "Yes, Mr. Deedes, if society cares to have me." "Of that there can be no shadow of doubt. But you will find society much altered-its rapid transformations sometimes bewilder me." "I knew so little of it before I went that I shall not be able to perceive the change, said Lord Mayrose. "I started, you remember, as soon as I had taken my degree - just a year after my poor father's death. But that brings me to business, Mr. Deedes. I must not encroach upon your time with so many other people waiting." Mr. Deedes bowed with a deprecating smile, and touched a hand-bell. "Lord Mayrose. "Papers, he said to the clerk who answered the summons: and this Clark, who had yellow hair, weak knees, and an appearance of having washed his Hands in the inkstand, presently returned with a pair of crimson tin boxes, both mottled with red spots as if they had caught measles from each other. "I can never s
