- How could I forget?

- This is my mother, Your Excellency.

Welcome to Naples, madam.

This is my friend the French Ambassador.

Did you stay in Rome?

Yes, Your Excellency

and thought it very beautiful.

We saw the Colosseum by moonlight

and were deeply impressed by the Vatican.

We just missed the Pope by ten minutes.

That was a great pity, madam.

Did you come through Pisa?

Did you see the famous leaning tower?

Yes, Your Excellency,

and we thought it very beautiful.

We thought the leaning tower of Pisa

one of the most remarkable

and lovely phenomena in the whole of Europe.

A chimney went like that in Liverpool last year

at the soap works.

It leant right over the gin warehouse and

the Bishop said it was the finger of God.

Charles - Mr Greville - sent you

many kind wishes, Your Excellency.

And he hopes I will prove worthy

of your kindness

and speak good French and Italian when

he comes to take me home in October.

He is coming the first week in October.

And er... he sent his uncle... a kiss.

Well, that's the first present I've ever received

from Charles Greville.

I feel sure you must be tired after your journey,


Francis, show the ladies their rooms.

Au revoir, madam. Au revoir, Miss Hart.

- Who is she?

- Charles Greville found her.

Where can you find things like that?

Charles happened to find her

at Featherstone Castle - Sir Harry's place.

- Oh, she's a relation of Sir Harry?

- You might call her that.

She lived there for a whole hunting season

and a very gay hunting season it was, I'm told.

Oh. And where did Sir Harry find her?

Well, you remember Dr Graham's Temple of Hell

and the famous dance of the seven veils?

- She's a dancer?

- You might call her that.

She was quite a success.
