George Washington Rules of Civility

Small Book, only 127 pages.  Probably would have fit in half of it since it gives the French interpretation.  It is an interesting bit of information albeit outdated.  It is really common sense things.  It is not a bad idea to read it and have an idea what a 'gentleman' was.  When compared to what people are today it is eye opening.

Example: 10th: When you sit down, keep your feet firm on the ground and even, without putting one foot on the other or crossing them.

This is also Masonic Etiquette; at least for the officers.
