OTHER NECESSARY INTRODUCTIONS
Even in New York’s most introductionless circles, people always introduce:
A small group of people who are to sit together anywhere.
Partners at dinner.
The guests at a house party.
Everyone at a small dinner or luncheon.
The four who are at the same bridge table.
Partners or fellow-players in any game.
At a dance, when an invitation has been asked for a stranger,
the friend who vouched for him should personally present him to the hostess.
“Mrs. Worldly, this is Mr. Robinson, whom you said I might bring.”
The hostess shakes hands and smiles and says:“I am very glad to see you, Mr. Robinson.”
A guest in a box at the opera always introduces any gentleman who comes to speak to her,
to her hostess, unless the latter is engrossed in conversation with a visitor of her own,
or unless other people block the distance between so that an introduction would be forced and awkward.
