Hospitality!

Here’s the next installment of manners and etiquette (courtesy of the Goops)?

Hospitality,
When a person visits you, remember he’s your guest
Receive him very kindly, and be sure he has the best;
Make  him very comfortable and show him all your toys,
An only play the games you’re very sure that he enjoys.

When you pay a visit, never  grumble or complain,
Try to be so affable they’ll want you there again;
Don’t forget the older ones, your hostess  least of all,
When you’re leaving  tell her you have had a pleasant call.
