A while back I was reading a book about George Washington to the boys. It mentioned the 110 Rules of Civility
that he was familiar with. This piqued my curiosity so I made a mental note to look them up when I had a chance. I was expecting to find some profound rules, rules that only the elite of the elite followed. Instead, I found things like:
7th Put not off your Cloths in the presence of Others, nor go out your Chamber half Drest.
13th Kill no Vermin as Fleas, lice ticks &c in the Sight of Others, if you See any filth or thick Spittle put your foot Dexteriously upon it if it be upon the Cloths of your Companions, Put it off privately, and if it be upon your own Cloths return Thanks to him who puts it off.
what I was expecting. You can see all 110 here
