"Father despised the telephone with a passion beyond all belief. He viewed the thing--'the instrument,' as he called it--not just as a letting-down of the side by the post office, but as an outright attack on the traditions of the Royal Mail in general, and the use of postage stamps in particular. Accordingly he refused, point-blank, to use it in any but the direst of circumstances" (54).
