Excerpt from The Relations of French and English Society: 1763-1793; Thesis Approved by the University of London for the Degree of M.A. 1911

Consequences of ingrafting on the French the customs of a nation whose outlook on life was wholly different. But there were many enthusiasts in France who envied the life of an English peer, who sighed for freedom of thought and speech, and deliberately adopted English habits as the expression of their wishes. In Chapter III, which follows the preliminary chapters, I endeavour to trace the growth of English methods of dress, and the introduction into France of the English horse-racing, gambling and club life, with its inevitable separation of the sexes. The consequences were, it seems to me, the development of the idea of equality among men, and the disappearance of the airs and graces and of the traditions of urbanity which in 1763 rendered French Society the most polished in the world. With the loss of these Characteristic features of social life, the ground is prepared for the most disgraceful aspect of the Revolution. Honeycombed with vices as French Society was, it needed but the loss of its polish, the cloak that hid its inward rottenness, to degenerate into the most vicious social order the world had yet seen.
