ASKING WOMEN TO DANCE. A man asks for the privilege of a dance either with the
daughter of the hostess, with any guest of the latter, or with any young woman receiving with her.
On being introduced to a woman, he may ask her for a dance, and should be punctual in keeping the engagement.
It is her privilege to end the dance at any moment she wishes, after which he should conduct her to her chaperone or find a seat for her, after which he is at liberty to go elsewhere.
If for any cause a man has to break his engagements to dance, he should personally explain the matter to every woman with whom he has an engagement and make a suitable apology.
