: [at Mrs. Henderson's husband's funeral
] I'm bored with widowhood. Lady Conway
: My dear, you've just scratched the surface. Laura Henderson
: I have to smile at everybody. I've never had to smile at everybody. In India, there were always people to look down on. Lady Conway
: People are merely being sympathetic. After all, you have lost your husband. Laura Henderson
: Well I didn't mislay him! It was most inconsiderate of Robert to die. What on earth am I supposed to do now?
: It's really not so bad. Widows are allowed hobbies. Laura Henderson
: Hobbies? Lady Conway
: Yes. Embroidery, things like that. Laura Henderson
: Are you mad? Lady Conway
: I've graduated to weaving. Would you care to see my tapestries? Laura Henderson
: I'd rather drink ink. Lady Conway
: Committees are good of course. I serve on quite a few charities. Once your husband dies, it's quite permissible to help the poor. And now, there's no one to stop you buying things. Also, of course, there's a great deal of time for lovers. Laura Henderson
: Margot, I'm nearly 70! Lady Conway
: That's true, but you're also very rich. The one cancels out the other.
: Adolescents and women in their eighth decade are strikingly similar.
: You obviously require a battle plan. My second husband, the general, always advocated attacking from the rear, which, although it did nothing to enhance our marriage, did bring him some success on the field.
[talking to the girls
] Lady Conway
: I quite understand what you were feeling. I myself have exhibited my breasts. I was at a party at Antibes with the Duchess of Denby and Countess Volpe, and we took off our blouses - in private, of course - and looked at each other's titties.
] Lady Conway
: My, how we laughed!
