pray let me introduce myself to you. my name is cecily cardew
cecily cardew? what a very sweet name! something tells me we are going to be great friends. i like you more already than i can say. my first impressions of people are never wrong.
How nice of you to like me so much after we have known each other such a comparitively small time. pray sit down
I may call you cecily may i not
and you will always call me gwendolen, wont you?
if you wish
then that is all quite settled is it not
i hope so
perhaps this might be a favourable opportunity for me mentioning who i am. My father is lord bracknell. you have never heard of papa i suppose?
i dont think so
outside the family circle, papa, i am glad to say is entirely unknown. i think that is quite as it should be. the home seems to me to be the proper sphere for the man. and certainly once a man begins to neglect his domestic duties he becomes painfully effeminate does he not? and i dont like that. it makes men so very attractive. cecily,mamma,whose views on education are remarkably strict, has brought me up to be extremely short sighted;it is part of her system:so do you mind my looking at you through my glasses?
oh not at all i am very fond of being looked at
you are here on a short visit, i suppose?
oh no i live here
really? your mother no doubt or some other relative of advanced years,resides here also?
oh no i have no mother, in fact any relations
my dear guardian with the assistance of miss prism has the arduous task of looking after me
yes i am mr worthings ward
oh it is strange that he never mentioned to me that he had a ward. how secretive of him. he grows more interesting hourly. i am not sure however that the news inspires me with feelings of unmixed delight.i am very fond of you cecily, i have liked you ever since i met you. nut i am bound to state that now that i know that you are mr worthings ward i cannot help expressing a wish that you were well just a little older than you seem to be and not quites so very alluring in appearance. in fact if i may speak candidly.
pray do i think that whenever one has something unpleasant to say they should always be quite candid.
well to speak with perfect candour cecily i wish that you were fully forty two and more than ususally plain for your age. ernest has a strong upright nature. he is the very soul of truth and honour. disloyalty would be as impossible to him as deception. but even men of the noblest possible moral character are extremely susceptible to the influence of the physical charms of others. modern no less than ancient history, supplies us with many most painful examples of what i refer to. if it were not so, indeed, history would be quite so unreadable.
i beg your pardon gwendolen did you say ernest
oh but it is not mr erenst worthing who is my guardian it is his brother, his elder brother
ernest never mentioned to me that he had a brother.
