I take it, sir, that you do not approve of our new society.
Approval, sir, in my opinion, demands the attainment of perfection. And in that sense, you rather overrate the charms of your society. I'faith, for one thing, it does seem monstrous ill-dressed for any society, even a new one.
If we are to succeed, we must maintain our anonymity, mask our identities. Even if it means suffering the mockery of others. Being taken for fools, fops, nitwits, even cowards.
Lord Timothy Hastings:
That's the easy part. The hard part's not being able to boast about our exploits to the ladies.
