Anthony Weiner in Brief

After noting that the qualities of a gentleman are somewhat haphazard, Shirley Robin Letwin points out "Certain qualities are more regularly observed, there is always some reference to 'polish', 'calmness', and 'collectedness'.  The other virtues attributed to a gentleman are courage, courtesy, and truthfulness, but there is a special stress on truthfulness."   The Gentleman in Trollope, Shirley Robin Letwin
