19th Century Manners

Senator Zebulon Vance sailed down Cheasapeake Bay with a group of men and women. He chose to step aside to allow a certain woman to mount one of the ladders on the boat. As the lady climbed, she noticed Vance glancing at her from behind.

She told him,"I can see, Senator, that you are not a gentleman."

Vance retorted,"Madam, beg your pardon but I too can see that you are not."
