ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the author's days with a baronet named Roger de Coverley in the latter's country house. The author notes that upon his stay at de Coverley's house, he was put under the care of a butler who is a very prudent man and who is wonderfully desirous of pleasing him because they had often heard their master talk of him as his friend. He shares the humorist side of de Coverley amidst all of his good qualities as well as his unique virtues that made him different from the rest.
