I found this quote amusing. The Lopez-Wilshaws, armed with a great fortune derived from guano - which is literally nitrogen derived from fermented batshit - mined from caves the family owned in South America, and turned into fertilizer, lived like royalty. Young de Rede, not quite acceptable to Paris society at first became known for his style. He had exceptionally narrow feet, and had his shoes made for him by a man named Cleverly in London. Soon all of the beau monde in Paris were going over to London to order shoes from Mr. Cleverly that looked as sleek and narrow as de Rede's. From: NYSocialDiary
