Actual Text:
“The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from Good Will and an acute Sense of Propriety, and whose Self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty; the obscure man of his obscurity; or of any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with Sincerity and Sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the Rights and Feelings of others rather than of his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom Honor is Sacred and Virtue safe.”
