Introductions & Greetings Suppliment

I’m hoping folks enjoyed the Church Steps article in the Citizen’s Companion.

I’ll be adding examples of introductions and greetings from literature to this post from time to time.

From a serial in The Ladies’ Repository

“Why” Elma exclaimed “Mrs Fessenden” taking her eyes off from her book “come here and tell me who has brought back as if by magic the rose to your cheek and the light to your eye.” 
“May I introduce them to you, Harriet?”
“Certainly if it is not Walter Parker.” 

From The Victoria Magazine   (A British reference.

“I’ll introduce you to the Colonel. Colonel Babbington, may I introduce an old friend and neighbour of ours, to you? Mr. Kilkee, Colonel Babbington.”
“Kilkee of the Turret?” said the Colonel, holding out his hand. “Right glad I am to make your acquaintance.”
