Rules of Etiquette, c. 1866

Martine’s Hand-Book of Etiquette, and Guide to True Politeness gives us rules on how to be a true gentleman, or at least how to behave as a tolerable human being:

If you cannot sing, or do not choose to, say so with seriousness and gravity, and put an end to the expectation promptly.

Obviously, the people from 1866 have never known karaoke or magic sing.
