Funny Bits 11-09-14: Georgette Heyer

Excerpt from Georgette Heyer's Cotillion (1953).

Freddy is the most truly chivalrous person imaginable!...Yes, and a great deal more to the purpose than all the people one was taught to revere, like Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad, and Young Lochinvar, and—and that kind of man! I daresay Freddy might not be a great hand at slaying dragons, but you may depend upon it none of those knight-errants would be able to rescue one from a social fix, and you must own, Meg, that one has not the smallest need of a man who can kill dragons!
