First Edition. "Mr. Grimes was brought up on the Shavian philosophy. As a footman, which is the vocation he chose, he is unique; and as a gentleman's valet he is superb.

But even in his fall Mr. Grimes remains a splendid instance of that modern impudence which is the fine flower of Shavianistic teaching".
