A fragrant odour of the choicest weeds, A hum of voices, pitched in high-born tones; A score of fellows, some of our best breeds, The Heir-apparent to the British throne; Soft-footed flunnery tending to their needs- The vintage in request tonight is Beaune- Luxurious lounging chairs, well-stuffed settees, An air of lavishness, and task and ease.
