. rizes you to say disagreeable things to your
^^tinaates. On the contrary, the nearer you
^ ^e into relation with a person, the more
^ cessary do tact and courtesy become. Ex-
®Pt in cases of necessity, which are rare, leave
^ouj. jQ learn unpleasant truths from
enemies; they are ready enough to tell
^ Good breeding never forgets that self
®Psect is universal.
