Classical Usage: In Chapter XV Isabel leaves Ralph to take a cab to the hotel on her own. He offers to see her safely to the inn, but she turns down his offer, adding that he is tired, and must go home to bed. After she departs he thinks to himself, “When people forget I’m a poor creature I’m often incommoded, . . . but it’s worse when they remember it!”
