"There are not one in a hundred men with gentleman so plainly written across them as Mr. Knightley."
Yet another line bastardized by McGrath (Cass will attest to the fact that I never let her forget it! ;-} ), but in this instance, to no comic or poetic advantage. The book reads:
"You might not see one in a hundred with gentleman so plainly written as in Mr. Knightley."
My pet peeve.
