Sample text

I mean that I know the real origin of your wealth and your career, and I have got your letter, too. SIR ROBERT CHILTERN. What letter? MRS. CHEVELEY. ] The letter you wrote to Baron Arnheim, when you were Lord Radley’s secretary, telling the Baron to buy Suez Canal shares—a letter written three days before the Government announced its own purchase. SIR ROBERT CHILTERN. ] It is not true. MRS. CHEVELEY. You thought that letter had been destroyed. How foolish of you! It is in my possession. SIR ROBERT CHILTERN.

LADY MARKBY. He has had a very interesting and brilliant career. And he has married a most admirable wife. Lady Chiltern is a woman of the very highest principles, I am glad to say. I am a little too old now, myself, to trouble about setting a good example, but I always admire people who do. And Lady Chiltern has a very ennobling effect on life, though her dinner-parties are rather dull sometimes. But one can’t have everything, can one? And now I must go, dear. Shall I call for you to-morrow? MRS.

I am not in a mood to-night for silver twilights, or rose-pink dawns. I want to talk business. ] SIR ROBERT CHILTERN. I fear I have no advice to give you, Mrs. Cheveley, except to interest yourself in something less dangerous. The success of the Canal depends, of course, on the attitude of England, and I am going to lay the report of the Commissioners before the House to-morrow night. MRS. CHEVELEY. That you must not do. In your own interests, Sir Robert, to say nothing of mine, you must not do that.
