In response to Class distinctions among servants?, written by Carolyn B on February 04, 1998 at 19:25:05
There were definate class distinctions among the servants and this is well portrayed in 'Upstairs,Downstairs". Also in the novel The Red and the Black by Stendahl the main character is a tutor and he eats with the family, albeit a little away at the end of the table. Probably in a very rich family he would have dined by himself or with the upper servants, but I thought it interesting that at least in Stendal's book, the tutor is right there with the fam.
