Chapter IVEdit

Marie Melmotte tells Sir Felix that if “a girl told me that she liked me better than any other girl, I should not know it, just because she said so.” Felix asks her if it would be different if a gentleman told her that, and she responds, “I shouldn’t believe him a bit, and I should not care to find out” (39). #Trust

“When Melmottesat down Fisker made his speech, and it was fluent, fast, and florid.” . . . “But there was more faith in one ponderous word from Mr. Melmotte’s mouth than in all the American’s oratory” (82). #Facility with Language #Trust
