my smoking might possibly be offensive.
I could not speak a word of German, but

Dickon' Fondness for Dancing:.
My father was certainly not what in the
oruiuury acceptation of the term would be
called "a goxl dancer." I doubt whether
he had ever received any instruction in "the
noble art" other than that which my sister
and I gave him. In later years I remember
trying to teach him the schottishe, a dance
which he particularly admired and desired
to learn. But, although he was fond 1
dancing, except at family gatherings in his
own or his most intimate friends' houses, I
never remember seeiug him participate.
