About the Author

Alfred H. Miles

Read an Excerpt

The art of conversation is not that of talking all the time. It is the art of drawing the best out of others, and contributing the best of one's own to the general treatment of the subject under discussion.

An offer of marriage is the highest compliment a man can pay to a woman, and as such should not be lightly undertaken and ungraciously received...The true lover will take care to show the utmost consideration for the feelings of the lady, and as a man of honor will only make such a proposal under circumstances which leave her quite free to accept or reject...Acceptance with a view to an engagement is usually followed by an interview with the lady's father or natural guardian...This ordeal successfully passed, the accepted lover presents the lady with an engagement ring.
