The Footman's Cold Shoulder
Surprisingly, the knock was answered, not by the lady of the house, but by an elderly footman.

"How can I help you, Sir?" said the footman.

"I want to see Ethelfried," Tamlin replied.

"What, if I may be so bold, Sir, is Sir's name?" enquired the footman.

"Tamlin. Th'lady knows me."

"Permit me to report to the Mistress."

The footman withdrew, leaving Tamlin waiting in the rain.
